Counseling Annual Data Report

2020-2021 Annual Data Report

The Department of Counseling (MCFC and CMHC tracks) has developed and implemented a comprehensive assessment plan that guides both student-level and program-level assessment. As required by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the counseling faculty participate in an annual review of curriculum, processes, student learning, and student and program outcomes through a systematic process of evaluation and assessment.

In October 2021 the Palo Alto University Counseling faculty reviewed the research findings on students, graduates, and clinical supervisors and employers of our students and graduates. The period of examination is from September 2020 through June 2021.

As required by CACREP, the Department of Counseling publishes an annual data report on its website and shares the posting of this data with students, faculty, site-supervisors, alumni, and university leadership. The 2020-2021 report is posted here.

In addition, the Department of Counseling collects and posts each year outcome data as required by CACREP to include student graduation rates, completion rates, employment data, and licensure pass rates on credentialing exams. This data for 2020 - 2021 is found in the CMHC Outcomes Report and the MCFC Outcomes Report.
