What is a Cardinal Course? A Cardinal Course is one that marries ways of thinking with ways of doing, allowing students to work with community partners and stakeholders on real-world issues. 

At this session, we will discuss what, how, and why to incorporate community engagement in your teaching. We will discuss how community engagement benefits your students, the community, and even your research program. We will highlight future training and grant opportunities. No previous experience with community engagement required. 

For more details about community engagement, please see our website:

And President Hennessy's announcement of Stanford's Cardinal Service initiative:

This workshop is open to anyone teaching classes or hoping to teach classes at some point in the future. Lunch is provided to those that RSVP.
