The Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is proud to be an accredited school of public health by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The Council establishes, monitors, and periodically revises the criteria by which it evaluates graduate public health schools and programs. This accreditation recognizes the quality of our programs and assures students that they will be trained in a manner consistent with the best standards in public health education.
To maintain our accreditation, the College must complete the re-accreditation process every seven years. This process involves: preparation of a thorough self-study report based on CEPH criteria for accreditation and our own self-assessment; a site visit by a team of qualified peer reviewers; and review of our self-study and the site visitor report by CEPH’s Board of Councilors for a final determination about our compliance with accreditation criteria and re-accreditation. The COPH was last re-accredited in July 2007 and will receive site visitors for review of the current self-study June 11-13, 2014. The current self-study report, related tables, and CEPH criteria are contained in the links below.
