ATSU granted accreditation for MPH and MPH-D programs

July 15, 2015
Posted In: Missouri Campus, Uncategorized

ceph_mastA.T. Still University’s College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) announced its Master of Public Health and Master of Public Health-Dental Emphasis programs received accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) extending through July 1, 2020.

“It is a great honor to have ATSU’s public health programs accredited by CEPH,” said Don Altman, DDS, DHSc, MPH, MBA, MA, dean of ATSU’s College of Graduate Health Studies. “This specialized accreditation avows the quality of the University’s online master’s in public health programs and commitment to adequately prepare students. Graduates are recognized as being knowledgeable and competent to carry out public health functions in local, state, national, and international settings.”

CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, that accredits schools of public health and public health programs. It is the only agency recognized to accredit graduate schools of public health and graduate public health programs outside schools of public health.

To earn and maintain accreditation, schools and programs must meet specific educational quality standards defined by CEPH. These standards relate to the school or program’s organization and instructional programs. The school or program’s creation, application and advancement of knowledge, and faculty, staff, and students are also standards defined by CEPH.

The programs received the maximum initial accreditation of five years. CEPH currently accredits 56 schools and 108 programs.

“The accreditation process requires commitment from administrators, faculty, staff, students, and other constituents,” said CEPH Executive Director Laura Rasar King, MPH, MCHES. “The Council recognizes the efforts of A.T. Still University to make ongoing improvements to ensure that students receive a high-quality education that advances them toward their career goals.”
