Counseling Annual Data Report

2021-2022 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 December 2022 the Palo Alto University Counseling faculty and staff reviewed the research findings on students, graduates, and clinical supervisors and employers of our students and graduates. The period of examination is from September 2021 through June 2022.

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 2021-2022 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 2021 - 2022 is found in the CMHC Outcomes Report and the MCFC Outcomes Report.
