Cardinal Service is an important part of Stanford's mission to benefit our region, country, and world. Community partners benefit from the expertise of graduate students, and engaging with the community to tackle societal problems benefits students academically, personally, and professionally.
While many Cardinal Service programs are aimed at undergraduate students, there are many other public service opportunities open to graduate students, including community-based research opportunities, project funding, courses, and student service organizations.
