Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the management and operations of the College and University Division of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and notes on the Student Volunteer Movement. The College and University Division is responsible for the administration of the student program that includes the work of the National Student YWCA. College and University Division staff meeting minutes and notes concern the staff needs, duties and division policies and procedure. Brief statistical reports present collected data on student association membership and program accompanied by some explanatory sections. In order to encourage unity between the work of the Community Division and the College and University Division of the YWCA of the U.S.A. under common purposes of the entire movement, the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. develops a "work tool" or guide book for implementing a united program in each community. Additionally, notes and outlines from the two divisions document their work towards implementing the united practices. Documents concerning the Student Volunteer Movement include a brief history and overview of the movement, a summary of conference plans and notes on the relationship between the Student Volunteer Movement and the United Student Christian Council.
