ISOS has a mission, which is the facilitation of a world-wide network of individuals and institutions committed to research and education on occupation and to promoting occupation for health and community development. ISOS describes occupation broadly as the various everyday activities people do as individuals, in families and with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to life. Occupations include things people need to, want to and are expected to do. ISOS has three main aims:

• To facilitate international collaboration in research on occupation
• To facilitate international collaboration in the development and delivery of occupational science / occupation-based curricula at all levels of education
• To promote occupation for health & community development in policy and practice arenas at local, national and international levels

ISOS will be a virtual society:
• ISOS will develop and maintain a website that will enable communication internationally among people and institutions interested in occupational science research and education, and in promoting occupation for health and community development. Retrieved September 9, 2010.


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