The Occupational Therapy Program at Tuskegee University was established in 1978 with the first class graduating in 1980. Tuskegee University houses the second oldest professional program in occupational therapy in the State of Alabama and the second oldest program at a historically black college or university.


Vision of the Occupational Therapy Program

It is the vision of the Occupational Therapy Program that graduates of Tuskegee University will enhance the quality of life, by improving the occupational performance status of individuals within our society. Our graduates will provide quality services for people from diverse communities and enable them to achieve life satisfaction through meaningful occupations.

Mission of the Occupational Therapy Program

The mission of the Occupational Therapy Program at Tuskegee University is to provide an academic environment for individuals who are committed to the enrichment of people’s lives through the tenets of occupational therapy. The program will provide educational experiences that will nurture creativity, intellectual curiosity, and promote the spirit of active, independent, and self-directed learning through dynamic interactions in the classroom and community service. 

The program uses the unique historical context of Tuskegee University to develop a deep sense of ethical conduct and community service in a rural community as a role model for students to become productive leaders in national and global communities. Using the foundation of occupational performance and productive behaviors across the lifespan, faculty members will assist students in learning the science and art of balancing technical skills and theory-based knowledge with all individuals while being respectful of their unique socio-cultural background.
