UNT Health Science Center’s School of Public Health has received reaccreditation from the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).

CEPH assures quality in public health education and training, and accreditation helps demonstrate that a school is committed to leading and fostering innovation and continuous quality improvement in its education programs.

CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs offered in settings other than schools of public health.

The Council is a private, nonprofit corporation with the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) as its two corporate members.

Reaccreditation for the SPH is for seven years, the maximum time period allowed.
