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 and certain public health programs.
The Kansas State University MPH Program received permission from the Kansas Board of Regents to pursue accreditation on 12 March 2009.
Kansas State University submitted a formal application to CEPH on 15 April 2009 to begin the accreditation process with them.
At their semiannual meeting in June, the Council of Education for Public Health (CEPH) formally approved Kansas State University's request to begin the accreditation process for our Master of Public Health Program.
The faculty, staff and administration worked together during the self-study period and compiled our report, as compared to the CEPH criteria for public health programs. The self-study document was then reviewed by multiple groups, to include faculty, department heads, deans, and the university's provost. We submitted the CEPH accreditation self-study document to reviewers on May 7, 2013. Kansas State University Self-Study Document
