    UC Berkeley's Online/On-campus Professional MPH (OOMPH) Program was the first on-line degree program on the Berkeley campus. It is a self- supporting degree program that receives no campus subsidy. It has grown steadily since opening and currently serves approximately 300 students annually. The School's ambition is both to continue to grow the OOMPH and similar programs that are self-supporting and generate revenue for the School as well as to use our on-line platforms to increase access to high- quality public health education in California and Globally. We envisage a future in which the boundaries between on-line and in person education blur and where the same tools are used in both. We also envisage that the tools will facilitate far greater collaboration among universities - whether within California or around the world - to the mutual benefit of the universities and their students.
