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 another seven year term, ending in 2022.  This has since been extended to December 2023.  The School will conduct a self-study in 2022 and a CEPH accreditation site visit will be conducted before December 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

Our thanks are extended to Stephen Gange, James Yager, Karen Charron and Liza Luby for their dedication and hard work during the 2015 re-accreditation process.

The final self-study and accreditation reports are available upon request by email at
