Limited diversity among OT students and practitioners has been identified as a problem for the future of the profession. This study reports results of a survey of perceptions of diversity and inclusion among OT students. Findings indicate that students who represent diversity may trust program policies and practices significantly less than nondiverse students. Programs should work to improve inclusion and engagement among all students.
