We are proud to say that our Graduate Programs in Public Health has been accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) since 1982.

To ensure our program continues providing top quality public health education, we are working with CEPH on renewing our current seven-year accreditation for our Graduate Programs by Fall 2021. This process involves an 18-month self-study — a systematic and rigorous evaluation of our degree programs and your opinion is highly valued and therefore your involvement is respectfully requested.

Sections of our preliminary self-study are available online, with a preliminary submission due May 7, 2021 and a final submission due by September 7, 2021. Our accreditation site-visit is scheduled for October 7-8, 2021.

The preliminary self-study materials are posted in draft form via this website. We welcome your comments and suggestions. For feedback for any section of the self-study report, please send an email to Heather Rose, Director of Accreditation at  

Thank you for your participation in this important activity. Accreditation by CEPH means that we have rigorously evaluated the quality and content of our instruction, research and service programs and have successfully met CEPH’s published criteria.

We look forward to posting the results of this accreditation process in 2022.
