The Council on Education for Public Health
CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and graduate public health programs outside schools of public health. The goal of CEPH 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.
The Council’s objectives are:
- To promote quality in public health education through a continuing process of self-evaluation by the schools and programs that seek accreditation
- To assure the public that institutions offering graduate instruction in public health have been evaluated and judged to meet standards essential for the conduct of such educational programs
- To encourage - through periodic review, consultation, research, publications and other means - improvements in the quality of education for public health
