School of Occupational Therapy
The Mission of the School of Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy is a health profession which is committed to helping all people participate in necessary and meaningful activities of life. The School of Occupational Therapy provides graduate education programs preparing students to become occupational therapists who excel in Practice, Inquiry and Advocacy. Building on and continuing the values of liberal education, students are guided to become excellent practitioners in diverse settings; to improve the profession by engaging in practice scholarship; and to provide leadership and advocacy ranging from local to international levels. In conjunction with its educational mission, the School engages with the larger professional and client community to encourage high quality services and to advocate for the health and participation of people, organizations and populations through meaningful occupation.
