The National Occupational Therapy Honor Society is Pi Theta Epsilon. The purposes of the honor society are:
- To recognize and encourage scholastic excellence in occupational therapy students.
- To contribute to the advancement of the field of occupational therapy through scholarly activities.
- To provide a vehicle for professional, entry-level students enrolled in accredited programs in occupational therapy to exchange information and to collaborate on scholarly activities.
Specific membership criteria are available from the Pi Theta Faculty Advisor. The faculty advisor will notify students of their eligibility at the end of the first semester of the junior year and invite them to become members. In addition to maintaining high academic standards, the students in the honor society are expected to perform a service activity for the community each year. A formal induction ceremony for the Alpha Gamma Chapter at Worcester State University is held each fall semester.
There is currently a moratorium on accepting new members to Pi Theta during a restructuring of the chapter at Worcester State University.
