The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is the nationally recognized accrediting body for both schools of public health and public health programs. ASPPH collaborates closely with CEPH staff to promote high-quality accreditation standards. ASPPH achieves this objective by supporting both undergraduate and graduate criteria and procedures that not only fit school and program goals, but serve students' learning, practice, and research needs while fulfilling their and societal expectations for excellence in education.
