CEHS has 10 different accrediting bodies that monitor selected programs and assure standards of quality. CEHS believes that the partnerships between these agencies and our programs serve the academic needs of our students and faculty by providing accountability and additional guidance for excellence in service delivery.
Some accrediting agencies have unique requirements for publically communicating data about our programs. For convenience to our CEHS stakeholders, we have consolidated that information on this page, organized by department. Additional non-required information is also provided. If you have any questions about accreditation of CEHS programs, please contact Beth Doll, associate dean for academic affairs, 402-472-2238.
