Stanford in Government (SIG)
Stanford in Government (SIG) creates a culture of civic and political engagement on the Stanford campus by offering opportunities for Stanford students to engage with and pursue policy as public service. SIG believes that direct public service plays an important role in communities, but that institutional reform fundamentally changes structures and systems for lasting public benefit. To inspire students to help enact institutional reform, SIG funds more than 80 fellowships for students each year at policy-related organizations, connects students with opportunities to hear and learn from policymakers and coordinates a variety of civic engagement initiatives, such as Get Out the Vote campaigns for elections.
Service required by the group to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: Students need to be members of SIG, participate in three or more events each quarter and volunteer at one event each quarter.
