A CEPH-Accredited School

January 2016


Georgia Southern University’s Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health (JPHCOPH) is fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. CEPH reviews schools of public health for accreditation every seven years. Schools are evaluated against criteria that establish expectations for the school’s mission, goals, evaluation and planning, as well as its organizational setting, governance, resources, educational programs, research, service, faculty and students.

Schools are required by CEPH to conduct a self-evaluation and submit a self-study report detailing how the school meets each criterion. A team of qualified peer reviewers conducts an on-site visit to validate the findings of the self-study. During the site visit, the team interviews school administrators, faculty, students, alumni, university officials and community leaders. The team also inspects the school’s facilities, examines documentation corroborating the self-study and prepares a report of its findings. The report is reviewed by the CEPH board responsible for granting accreditation.
