Public Service at Stanford

At Stanford, students are offered many ways to incorporate public service into their lives.

They can live in Branner Hall, whose residents – sophomores, juniors and seniors – have made a commitment to incorporate public service into their lives.

They can participate in Cardinal Service, a university-wide initiative designed to elevate and expand service as a distinctive feature of a Stanford education. The Haas Center for Public Service is the hub of the program, which has many spokes.

“Public service has always been a part of Stanford’s identity, and Cardinal Service is a means of elevating and acknowledging the robust and varied efforts throughout the university that connect service and learning,” said Tom Schnaubelt, executive director of the Haas Center.

“Stanford’s public service ecosystem has evolved greatly over the past several decades, and the Cardinal Service initiative creates opportunities for students, faculty and staff to integrate these rich academic and community experiences with greater intentionality and cohesiveness.”
