The Intergenerational Center (IGC) of Temple University’s College of Education brings together diverse communities and generations to address critical social concerns and create opportunities for lifelong civic engagement through innovative, intergenerational programs to help practitioners effectively address community needs. 

The IGC began in 1979 at Temple University, cultivating a forty-year partnership between Temple students and faculty, Philadelphia community members, and community partners and agencies. We have innovative programs that offer high quality training and consultation in order to strengthen students and caregivers in our community. We study the impact of our work and identify research-based practices that have been proven successful. For more information, please contact the Director, Dr. Patience Lehrman, at patience@temple.edu.
