Grajo appointed Chairperson for OT Academic Leadership Council

Congratulations to Lenin C. Grajo, PhD, OTR/L, ALC, who was appointed by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) as Chairperson for the OT Academic Leadership Council (OT-ALC). The OT-ALC provides a forum at the national level to present, examine, and debate educational issues such as practitioner education, faculty recruitment and retention, student admission procedures, reaccreditation policies, extramural funding, budgeting and administrator workloads, research, and continuing education. The OT-ALC Chairperson advocates for AOTA on current issues and advises to appropriate policy making bodies on matters pertinent to its members – Deans, Chairs, and Program Directors of entry-level and post-professional occupational therapy programs. His term begins on July 1, 2024, and ends June 30, 2025.

Grajo also recently earned his Credentialed Leader in Academia title from AOTA after completing the Academic Leadership Institute from 2023-2024 and is excited to serve the profession in this new leadership role.
