The School of Public Health and Health Sciences is currently undergoing a rigorous self-assessment as part of its reaccreditation process with the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The initial results of the school’s self-study report, which includes a systematic examination of its instructional, research, and service programs and activities, has been submitted to CEPH and is available for review online here.

One of the most important parts of the self-assessment process is feedback from the school’s constituents, including faculty, staff, students, alumni, board members, community partners, and members of the university community. The school invites commentary from all on the self-study report, including how well the school is meeting the accreditation criteria and the report’s conclusions about the school’s strengths, weaknesses, and plans for improvement.

Please share your thoughts using the online feedback form found on the self-study report webpage. All feedback from this form will be anonymous and will be considered for the final report due to CEPH on February 23, 2022.

We also invite all stakeholders to submit third-party comments about the Self-Study Report or any aspect of the SPHHS directly to CEPH. You may do so up until 30 days before the reaccreditation team’s scheduled site visit on March 23-25, 2022.

If you would like to submit third-party comments directly to CEPH, please email them to submissions@ceph.org.
