Cardinal Commitment

Partners in Health student organization
Dedicate yourself to an issue or community and get support for your work!

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.

Learn more about Cardinal Commitment, what's expected when you make a Commitment and how to actually make a Cardinal Commitment!

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.
