Dear HSPH Community,

The Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health. CEPH’s accreditation procedures require that the HSPH periodically undertake a self-evaluation and submit a self-study document prior to a site visit by a team of qualified peer reviewers. The reviewers validate the self-study during an extensive site visit. The last HSPH accreditation site visit was held September 21-23, 2009, and HSPH was recently accredited until July 1, 2017.

Our self study document is available online. For more information on the HSPH accreditation, please contact Michelle Bell, Assistant Dean for Educational Programs at
