    Dr. Craig Velozo joined the Division of Occupational Therapy as the Division Director on July 1, 2013. Dr. Velozo, a nationally recognized OT educator and researcher, brings with him experience from two highly esteemed and ranked Occupational Therapy Programs: University of Florida and the University of Illinois-Chicago. He brings a well-defined vision and strong leadership for the division. He was formerly a Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Occupational Therapy at the University of Florida. He was also a Research Health Scientist at the Rehabilitation Outcomes Research Center, the Research Enhancement Awards program and the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health Center and has a long track record of funded research in the functional cognition - TBI area. He has received numerous awards including the Silver Circle Award for Teaching Excellence, the Excalibur Award for Excellence in Teaching from the University of Illinois-Chicago and the Superior Accomplishment Award from the University of Florida. Nationally, he is a member of the American Occupational Therapy Academy of Research and has received the Service Commendation Award from the American Occupational Therapy Association. He has 61 refereed publications and over 100 presentations and five book chapters. He is a passionate advocate for the profession of Occupational Therapy and will bring outstanding leadership and mentoring skills to the college.
