Haas Center for Public Service

Since 1985, the Haas Center for Public Service has been connecting Stanford students with opportunities to serve communities locally, nationally, and around the world.

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.

Faculty can support service at Stanford by integrating community-engaged learning into their courses. We look forward to helping you connect students with community through advising, course design, and funding.

Volunteer Opportunities Fair with local community partners

Community Organizations

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.

Alumni support Haas Center programs through gifts of time and treasure, including taking students working in their area to coffee or lunch, or hosting a local event to bring together alumni and students.
