What’s your passion?

Is there an issue or an organization that really speaks to you? You can make and sustain a significant service commitment as part of your Stanford experience.

Making a Cardinal Commitment means engaging with a community to address a problem or need, for a significant amount of time – three quarters while you’re at Stanford, preferably contiguous. You’ll develop a personal mission statement describing your commitment, receive advice and guidance from a mentor or supervisor, and spend some time documenting and reflecting on your service experience.

Below are some programs or organizations you may be interested in, and there are many more.

Questions? Contact Kelly Beck at the Haas Center for Public Service.
