Every seven years, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is evaluated by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the independent accrediting agency for U.S. Schools of Public Health. 

As part of this evaluation, the school constructs a self-study that comprehensively describes the school’s organization, governance, resources, faculty, students, curriculum, research, and services. The self-study is reviewed by an external committee who visits the school and meets with a variety of stakeholders including faculty, students, staff, alumni, and external community representatives. This committee makes a recommendation to the CEPH Board on whether the school should continue to be accredited.

In 2015, the CEPH Board voted to renew the accreditation of the School for a seven year term, ending in 2022.  This has since been extended to December 2023.  The School is currently in the process of conducting a self-study, and a CEPH accreditation site visit will be conducted December 6-8, 2023. Bloomberg School constituents with comments or observations to share with the team currently working on the Bloomberg School's self-study are welcome to send a note to

As part of the Bloomberg School's reaccreditation process, third parties are invited to send written comments to CEPH that will inform the accreditation review. Such comments should be sent before November 6, 2023 to

The School’s 2023 self-study, which has included input from a vast number of BSPH constituents and collaborators, is being developed by David Dowdy, Liza Kalashnikova, Laura Morlock, Elizabeth "Liz" Stuart, and Felicity Turner.
