Advisory Committee

The OTA Program Advisory Committee is representative of the OT field in our service area.  The purpose of the committee is to advise the program on matters related to:

  • goals and objectives that impact the program’s curriculum
  • policies regarding classroom and fieldwork
  • specific OTA skills required in the workforce
  • current and future trends in the field of OT
  • instructional supplies, equipment selection and acquisition 
  • the adequacy of existing facilities and equipment
  • recruiting resource persons within the business/industry community who will provide external learning experiences and/or student employment
  • professional development of the faculty

 In addition to representing the needs of special populations, the committee members serve a public relations function in promoting and publicizing the program to the community and to business and industry.
