Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

FIU Online Degree Program Announced

From Dr. Alexis McKenney, CTRS:
Greetings from Miami, Florida. I'm happy to announce that the Florida International University (FIU) Recreational Therapy (RT) program has gone live with its new online degree program. The website is now up and running and admissions has begun for our first class. After years of negotiating how to set tuition rates, we finally agreed to a market rate for each three-credit course. Because of this, we will not be charging out of state tuition or adding fees for athletics, health, parking, etc. Although we are primarily set up for students who are ready to transfer in from two-year colleges, because of the increasing number of students declaring RT as their major as freshmen, we are providing support for those students, as well. Online staff members are now available by email, phone, or online chat by visiting:
