Making a Cardinal Commitment means engaging with a community to address a problem or need for at least three quarters while you’re at Stanford. You’ll develop a personal mission statement describing your commitment, receive advice and guidance from a mentor or supervisor, and spend some time documenting and reflecting on your service experience.
Though Cardinal Commitment supports and recognizes the sustained service of individual students, we know that much of the public service work done at Stanford is through student groups, campus programs, and community partners. Cardinal Commitment also provides resources to support these efforts including funding, transportation, and advising.
