Accreditation

            The College of Public Health is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).  Our current accreditation expires December 2021.  The college completed its self-assessment process to systematically examine our instructional, research and service programs and activities in 2014.  This self-study process is one part of our ongoing effort to continually improve our programs to meet the needs of our students, public health partners, and citizens of the State of Georgia. 

CEPH

The Council on Education for Public Health is an independent agency recognized by the US Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs offered in settings other than schools of public health. These schools and programs prepare students for entry into careers in public health.  The goal of the Council is "to enhance health in human populations through organized community effort." The Council's focus is the improvement of health through the assurance of professional personnel who are able to identify, prevent and solve community health problems. 

CEPH accreditation sets the benchmark by which all accredited schools of public health strive to “enhance health in human populations through organized community effort."  Accreditation assures our constituents that we have rigorously and systematically planned and evaluated the quality and content of our instruction, research and service programs and activities and have met the high standards of our profession.  Currently, there are only 52 schools in the world who have met these high standards.
