Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2018

The study explored the academic experiences of occupational therapists of color. Results show that academic and leadership success did not shield them from marginalization or racism, highlighting the need for the occupational therapy profession to transform its educational standards, policies, and operations to provide social justice for students.
