Scope and Contents

Documents concerning student Christian work on college campuses including governing documents of the United Campus Christian Fellowship, an overview of student Christian movements and a report of the study "Changing Values in College." This study, sponsored by the Edward w. Hazen Foundation, examines the affect general social science education has on the values and attitudes of American college students. The United Campus Christian Fellowship unites several student Christian movements to develop the religious life of individuals and contribute to campus life. Its purpose, organizational structure and functions are outlined in a document containing its statement of commitment, covenant, aims, basis and articles of operation and its assembly report provides a brief overview of the national issues addressed in 1960. In addition, an overview of the development of student Christian movements in the United States is presented in a newsletter from the Bureau of Research and Survey of the National Council of the Churches.
