Occupational Therapy Doctorate Program Mission
Our Mission is to educate and prepare future occupational therapists who respond to the occupational needs of a diverse, complex, interdependent, and ever-changing global society. Xavier University OTD graduates will practice as ethical, competent, and caring professionals using critical, creative, and reflective thinking and habits of lifelong learning. As professionals, Xavier University graduates will balance autonomous and collaborative decision-making to successfully navigate a variety of inclusive delivery systems in traditional and emerging practice areas where they implement theory-driven and evidence-based practice. Xavier University graduates will be leaders who model and advocate for justice for persons, groups, and populations. To promote occupational participation and advance the profession, our graduates will utilize, produce, and disseminate scholarly works.
