Public Health Re-Accredited with CEPH

The Council on Education (CEPH) for Public Health is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health programs. Achieving CEPH accreditation is an important part of public heath education, and last week the Division of Public Health program at DFPM received word that they had been re-accredited by CEPH for another seven years.

Gaining accreditation from CEPH is a monumental task, requiring months of document gathering, intensive site visits, and hard work from Public Health staff and faculty.

"I am thrilled with the outcome," says Steven Lacey, PhD, CIH, CSP, professor and Chief of the Public Health Division. "This is always hard work, and we did it in the middle of a pandemic. This is simply evidence of the continuous great work of our faculty and staff team."
