The Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) Board of Councilors acted at its Sept. 7, 2018, meeting to re-accredit the University of Iowa College of Public Health for a seven-year term, with an interim report to be submitted in summer 2019 to address partially met criteria. The renewed accreditation term extends until Dec. 31, 2025, pending the college’s continued documentation of compliance in accordance with CEPH’s reporting requirements.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your dedication and hard work in helping our college achieve this important milestone,” said Edith Parker, dean of the College of Public Health. “This successful accreditation decision was only possible because of the extraordinary faculty, staff, students, alumni, community partners, and other supporters of this remarkable college. With your continued commitment, I am confident that we will be successful in all of our educational, research, and community engagement activities as we move forward to meet the public health challenges of the future.”
