Cardinal Quarter is a campus-wide initiative that offers undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in a full-time, quarter-long public service experience designed to integrate academic learning with field-based experience. Students can pursue prearranged placements or self-designed opportunities in both domestic and international settings.
The Haas Center administers many Cardinal Quarter opportunities for undergraduate students, and provides advising and support throughout the fellowship experience. Nearly 500 opportunities are offered each year through more than 30 campus partners involved in the Cardinal Quarter initiative.
As a Haas Center Undergraduate Fellowship 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.
Walk-in advising with program staff is available on Thursdays and Fridays from 1-3pm on the second floor of the Haas Center or email email@example.com with questions or to schedule an advising appointment. You may also wish to speak with a Cardinal Quarter Peer Advisor.
