EdP mentors heading out to teach
Join the hundreds of Stanford students who are discovering the value of service – addressing social needs, connecting with their communities, and finding purpose and meaning in their areas of study.

Through the university-wide Cardinal Service initiative, you can make service a distinctive feature of your Stanford education. Choose from a wide variety of public and community service opportunities, ranging from on-campus courses to off-campus research to community-based leadership projects. Students pursuing any course of study can find opportunities to serve and many offer academic credit.
