CEPH’s Plans for Releasing Their Draft Update to Accreditation Criteria

The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) released a schedule for circulating a draft, five-year update to their accreditation criteria for schools and programs, reiterating their previously stated aim to keep the revisions focused on minor clarifications and to clear up areas of common misunderstanding or confusion.

CEPH plans to circulate the draft revised criteria in March 2021. The open comment period is scheduled for March 22-June 30, 2021. Notice to accredited units regarding the new criteria is set for September 23, 2021.

The full info is found on the CEPH website.

ASPPH leadership and staff will work with the Accreditation and Credentialing Advisory Committee and the board to prepare the ASPPH response. Stay tuned for details in this space or contact Liz Weist ( with questions or ideas.
