Build knowledge, skills, and networks while making meaningful contributions to communities locally, nationally, and across the globe.
Cardinal Quarter offers you the opportunity to participate in a full-time, quarter-long public service experience designed to integrate your academic learning with field-based experience. You can pursue prearranged placements or self-designed opportunities in both domestic and international settings. Nearly 500 opportunities are offered each year through more than 30 campus partners involved in the Cardinal Quarter initiative.
As a Cardinal Quarter participant, you will engage in pre-field preparatory programs, cohort activities, advising sessions with faculty members, and reflection activities during and after the service experience. You will also receive a stipend award, which may be adjusted based on demonstrated financial need or for students traveling internationally or to high cost-of-living locations.
Most Cardinal Quarter application deadlines are in early February 2019, including many on Monday, February 4th, so it is important to plan ahead. Come by for walk-in advising with program staff on Tuesdays between 3-6pm and Fridays between 12-3pm on the second floor of the Haas Center, or meet with a Cardinal Quarter Peer Advisor. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to set up an advising appointment outside of walk-in hours.
