Welcome to the Haas Center, the hub of Cardinal Service.
The Haas Center for Public Service inspires Stanford University to realize a just and sustainable world through service, scholarship, and community partnerships. It is the hub of Cardinal Service, a university-wide effort to make service an essential feature of a Stanford education.
As a hub for service at Stanford, we engage more than 1,000 students each year in service locally and around the world. Our partner organizations provide valuable opportunities for students to apply academic learning to serving their community.
