Michigan Public Health and Accreditation

CEPH logoThe Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) is the nationally-recognized accrediting body for both schools of public health and for public health programs. Its work ensures that accredited institutions meet the standards of education in public health disciplines, making sure that our curriculum is excellent and that our graduates have the competencies and experiences to become successful public health professionals. Michigan Public Health has been continuously accredited since 1946, and was among the first cohort of 10 schools to earn accreditation at that time.

Why does accreditation matter? CEPH outlines the benefits of attending an accredited school on their website.

The school’s current accreditation is through July 1, 2027. Requests for a copy of the final self-study report or official accreditation report may be directed to Emily Youatt (youatt@umich.edu).
