It is our ultimate goal to assist the population we serve in obtaining the necessary tools to make mature and independent lifestyle choices.

Communicable Disease Information
Colleges across the country are responding to the ever increasing threats of communicable diseases. Living conditions and poor health habits (lack of sleep, inadequate diet, and stress) make the student population particularly at risk.
Pacific Union College wants to be proactive in its approach to students. We are working closely with the Napa County Health Department with appropriate protocol responses to these issues.
