The University of Georgia College of Public Health is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).  The Council on Education for Public Health is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. 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 College of Public Health was re-accredited by CEPH in September 2014 for a seven-year term, extending to December 30, 2021.  The College of Public Health completed a major self-study in October 2013, to prepare for re-accreditation. After review of the self-study and a thorough three-day site visit by representatives from CEPH in March 2014, the CEPH Board of Councilors published a final report with its accreditation decision. CEPH accreditation attests to the quality of an educational program and enhances a school or program’s national reputation.

For information concerning the accreditation of the College of Public Health, please contact Dr. Jessica Legge Muilenburg, Assistant Dean for Strategic Planning and Assessment, (706) 542-2300.
