The Haas Center is the hub for Cardinal Service, a university-wide initiative to elevate service at Stanford in four areas:
- Cardinal Quarter: Students can select from more than 350 supported opportunities to participate full-time in service for a quarter or more. In the next five years, this will grow to 500 local, national and global opportunities.
- Cardinal Courses: Students can participate in more than 70 courses across 25 academic disciplines that integrate a community experience, examine a public issue, and explore civic identities.
- Cardinal Commitments: Students participate in and sustain a significant service experience to explore particular social issues or concerns.
- Cardinal Careers: Students explore multiple public service career options and learn about ways to integrate service into any career.
