A measure of our mission

Council on Education for Public Health

The Colorado School of Public Health is the first and only accredited school of public health in the Rocky Mountain West.  Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the Colorado School of Public Health strives to train and support the public health workforce in Colorado and regionally. 

In fulfillment of our mission and vision, our accreditation documentation lays out the goals and measures by which we and the accreditation entity measure our success in providing public health education and research throughout Colorado and the greater Rocky Mountain West.

Opened as a collaborative school in 2008, school-wide accreditation was granted by CEPH in October 2010.  Accrediation will extend through December 31, 2015.  Accreditation documentation will be published on this website as a public resource.  Requests for additional documentation or questions concerning documentation should be submitted to the Colorado School of Public Health, please call 303.724.4585.
