J. Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA)

The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) seeks to serve the needs of its members by providing a support network, organizing educational seminars, and promoting the field of Occupational Therapy. The SOTA also provides the opportunity for its members to work in coalition with the national and state professional associations, participate in community service and charitable fund raising, as well as developing a mentoring relationship with professionals in the field. In addition, fund raising activities are held to send selected representatives to the Maryland Occupational Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Association annual conferences. Students assume responsibility for leading the activities and directives of SOTA; a faculty member serves as the adviser. A mailbox for SOTA is located in the main office for the Department of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science, and SOTA officers maintain a bulletin board in the hallway between classrooms. Contact information for officers is available from OT faculty upon request.

Department consent is required for admission to all occupational therapy major courses.
