Anti-Discrimination Policy

Loma Linda University’s policy on anti-discrimination states the following: The University is committed to equal education and employment opportunities for men and women. While Loma Linda University (LLU) gives preference in its selection processes to  students and employees who are aligned with the faith-based mission of the University and the Seventh-day Adventist Church, LLU does not and shall not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, medical condition, physical handicap, mental condition, veteran’s status, or age in the provision of any of its services. In the department of counseling and family sciences, we adhere to this policy and additionally do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of socioeconomic or relationship status.

Student Achievement Data

COAMFTE requires accredited programs to provide Student Achievement data, starting with the year the program becomes accredited or over the most recent 10 years. The following table provides all Student Achievement data for the Couple and Family Therapy track in the Systems, Families, and Couples PhD program.

COAMFTE Data for SFC PhD Program 2022

FT=Full-time
PT=Part-time
Programs are only required to provide data on the past 10 years/cohort or since the program was initial accredited, whichever is shorter. 
*Programs should report graduation rates for program's Advertised Length of Completion which is how long the program is designed to complete as written.  
**Programs applying for initial or renewal of accreditation are required to publish the following in their SAC table: (1) the maximum length of program completion (years only) and (2) graduation rates for maximum length of program completion (maximum allowable time in which a student must finish the program). Programs in Maintenance of Accreditation are encouraged to continue publishing the graduation rates for maximum length of completion but are not required to do so.
***Master's and Doctoral programs are required to provide this information. Job Placement Rates by cohort is defined as the percentage of graduates from the cohort year listed that are employed utilizing skills learned in the COAMFTE-accredited program. 
****Master's programs are required to provide this information. Doctoral and Post-Degree programs are encouraged to share this with the public. For Master's programs only, COAMFTE has established a benchmark of 70% pass rate for each cohort. Programs in California can use the California Law and Ethics exam for MFTs to meet this requirement. Master's programs can add a column if they have International students that do not take the exam or if they have students that take either the National Exam or the California Exam.

Our Faculty

Each faculty member within the department of Counseling and Family Sciences supports the mission, goals and learning outcomes of the Systems, Families, and Couples PhD program as well as the mission and values of the university. Although our educational backgrounds represent various disciplines, we share a common respect for and belief in systemic-relational thinking and evidence-based practice. This is demonstrated by our efforts in reviewing and voting on individual program policies as well as accreditation, involvement in various ongoing presentation and publication efforts, advocating and modeling a systems-relational perspective in clinical practice and supervision of students both in and outside of the classroom.
