USC Occupational Therapy and Science Council (OTSC)

The purpose of the USC Occupational Therapy and Science Council is:

  • To represent Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy student interests to the Division, the Graduate Student Government (GSG), and the university.
  • To provide students an opportunity to network, interact, and celebrate with graduate students of other programs by sponsoring, organizing, or advertising events for the purposes of education or socialization.
  • To provide students with volunteer and fundraising opportunities to contribute to non-profit and non-governmental agencies around the world sharing our vision.

The following philanthropy reports provide an overview of our accomplishments, and the diversity of the work we do:
