From the Department Head Welcome

This is an exciting time to be an occupational therapist, and Colorado State University is one of the best places in the world to study, practice, and research.

We are recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a top-10 program. Our outreach centers, the Assistive Technology Resource Center, and the Center for Community Partnerships, are world-class. Each year we graduate approximately 50 new practitioners and two or three new researchers from our Ph.D. program in Occupation and Rehabilitation Science. Our research teams produce meaningful work enabling participation in everyday life, an understanding of body structures and functions that underlie participation and access to services.

I am proud to boast about our exceptional faculty, staff, students, and programs.
