Location


 

We are located in Northern California, halfway between San Francisco and the Napa Valley wine country.  Specifically, TUC is located on historic Mare Island in Vallejo, which opened in 1851 as the first naval base on the West Coast of the USA.  There are ferries that can take you from the Island to San Francisco, and getting to Napa is easy via car.  There is plenty to do for outdoor enthusiasts and those who love culture.  Please click here for a list of fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area.

 

Research Opportunities


 

Public Health Program faculty are actively involved in community-based work supporting Vallejo, and in both domestic and international research.  Student participation in these activities greatly enhances the student experience, and provides opportunities for hands-on experience with community work and/or research.  Many students end up presenting their collaborative work with faculty at professional conferences. 
 
Feel free to contact faculty directly and speak with them about their research interests—they may have projects you can work on!
