Office of the Provost
Faculty & Staff
The mission of the Office of Education Effectiveness is assessment, accreditation and professional development. We support faculty, administrators and staff in assessment, institutional research and program reviews. Our office coordinates accreditation reviews by the WASK Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA).
Our faculty, administrators and staff are the core of Loma Linda University. We provide professional development in areas such as teaching and instruction, student learning and education technology to enhance teaching and learning
Excellence in STEM Experiential Education (EXSEED) is an innovative and collaborative program designed to enhance integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in Adventist K-12 schools. It is a partnership between K-12 educators, K-12 schools and organizations, and higher education partners, including Andrews University, Kettering College, La Sierra University, Loma Linda University, Pacific Union College, Walla Walla University, and the Pacific Union Conference, with LLU acting as the facilitator. The goal of EXSEED is to collaboratively support and empower K-12 educators in teaching the STEM disciplines within a Mission-Focused Learning (MFL) context.
Educational Support Services
Educational Support Services (ESS) provides information technology support for Loma Linda University.
Loma Linda University supports faculty development in many ways. The University Faculty Council appoints the Faculty Development Education Committee with representatives from each of the schools. Committee members have special expertise and interest in teaching and learning.
The committee plans the campus Faculty Development Showcase Week designed to reward and showcase creative plans for teaching and learning by faculty throughout the University. These conferences are held every other year at the Centennial Complex, featuring poster presentations, workshops, educational technology exhibits and keynote lectures.
