Cardinal Commitment supports and honors students’ individual sustained public service. Students make a Cardinal Commitment by dedicating themselves to an issue or community for a minimum of three three quarters.
A three-part communal model supports students making a Cardinal Commitment.
1) Material and institutional support from the Haas Center.
2) Community support from a community partner, campus program, and/or student organization they are working with.
3) Mentorship through a Cardinal Commitment mentor.

Though a program to support and honor the public service of individuals, we understand that much of public service is done through student groups, campus programs, and community partners. Cardinal Commitment provides resources to support these efforts.
If your organization provides opportunities for students to engage in significant and sustained service for three quarters or more, you can access funding, priority programming space, and other helpful resources.
