My congratulations to my faculty at NMSU for receiving word that our MPH was re-accredited for another seven years. Anybody who has gone through accreditation knows the amount of work that it takes to complete such a task. The faculty at NMSU can be proud of their accomplishment. At this time, we’re the ONLY institution in the country (actually the world) that has a CEPH accredited MPH AND a SABPAC approved undergraduate program.

Special acknowledgement needs to go to the NMSU graduate coordinator, Jim Robinson, for overseeing this process. Although it was a true faculty involvement, one person needs to oversee this process. That person was Dr. Robinson.

NMSU is currently undergoing their undergraduate approval self-study. Again, all faculty are involved, but Sue Forster-Cox is the lead coordinator. We are planning our site visit for February 2012.
