CEPH accreditation attests to the quality of UNE’s educational program

  • For grad­u­ates, it pro­motes pro­fes­sion­al mobil­i­ty and enhances employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties in posi­tions that base eli­gi­bil­i­ty upon grad­u­a­tion from an accred­it­ed school or pro­gram.
  • For prospec­tive stu­dents and their par­ents, accred­i­ta­tion serves a con­sumer pro­tec­tion pur­pose. It pro­vides assur­ance that the school or pro­gram has been eval­u­at­ed and has met accept­ed stan­dards estab­lished by and with the pro­fes­sion.
  • For prospec­tive employ­ers, it pro­vides assur­ance that the cur­ricu­lum cov­ers essen­tial skills and knowl­edge need­ed for today’s jobs.
  • For pub­lic health work­ers, it involves prac­ti­tion­ers in the estab­lish­ment of stan­dards and assures that edu­ca­tion­al require­ments reflect the cur­rent train­ing needs of the pro­fes­sion.
  • For the pro­fes­sion, it advances the field by pro­mot­ing stan­dards of prac­tice and advo­cat­ing rig­or­ous prepa­ra­tion.
