CEPH Accreditation Evaluation - Opportunity for Public Comment

The Master of Public Health (MPH) program at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) on Monday, May 22, 2023 and Tuesday, May 23, 2023.

As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CEPH supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by public health focused programs and schools and supports continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education in the field. CEPH is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

SNHU is seeking accreditation for the Master of Public Health and Master of Public Health with a concentration in Global Health degrees. Other degrees and areas of study will not be included in the accreditation review. The MPH program has been undergoing a self-study process, addressing the CEPH Accreditation Criteria for Schools of Public Health and Public Health Programs (2016). An evaluation team will visit the university to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate and make a recommendation to the Council regarding initial accreditation. Following a review process, the Council itself will take the final action.

In accordance with CEPH’s procedures, program constituents and other interested parties are invited to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation. Please note that comments should address substantive matters related to the quality of the program offered, and should specify the relationship to the provider (i.e. graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates, etc.). Comments may be submitted via printed mail or email to:

Council on Education for Public Health
1010 Wayne Ave, Suite 220
Silver Spring, MD 20910


Third-party comments must be received by CEPH by April 22, 2023 and should relate to the CEPH Accreditation Criteria for Schools of Public Health and Public Health Programs (2016). Comments are shared only with the CEPH evaluation team appointed to review the noted public health degrees.
