    Loma Linda University was founded as the College of Evangelists by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1905. The first school, nursing, has been joined over the years by the schools of allied health professions, behavioral health, dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, public health, and religion. In 1961, in recognition of the expanded scope of the College of Medical Evangelists, the name of the institution changed to Loma Linda University. From 1967 until 1990, the University incorporated a campus in Riverside, California, that included a College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, and School of Education. When the two campuses eventually separated in 1990, the Loma Linda campus was designated as a health sciences university while the Riverside campus became known as La Sierra University.

    The Board of Trustees is made up of Seventh-day Adventist Church officials and other Adventist members who provide oversight to the operations and environment of the University. In addition, the University is under the umbrella of Loma Linda University Adventist Health Sciences Center (LLUAHSC) dba Loma Linda University Health (LLUH), which brings together the educational, research, and health care entities of the campus.
