Original Accreditation

DePaul's MPH program was accredited in June of 2013; accreditation was retroactive to the program's development in 2008.  As part of the accreditation process, the DePaul MPH program must assess the extent to which it meets the criteria established by CEPH.  This is accomplished through a formal self-study report.  The program's original self-study report and the site visit report provided by CEPH at the conclusion of their first site visit can be found below.
