Accreditation

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. In 2015, the UC Berkeley School of Public Health was engaged in the reaccreditation process.

Associate Dean Joan Bloom led the 2015 CEPH Accreditation Self-Study procedure—a thorough review of the School, its educational programs, research enterprise, administrative structure, and faculty, student, and staff complements. The final Accreditation Self-Study Report was prepared with assistance from faculty, staff, students, and other School of Public Health constituents.  

The CEPH Board of Councilors prepared a final report and acted at its June 15-18, 2016 meeting to accredit the UC Berkeley School of Public Health for a seven-year term, extending to July 1, 2023. Thank you to all who participated in this journey together to clarify the School’s current programs and practices and to help determine steps for continued success in the future.
