Scope and Contents
The Commission on New Directions of the National Student YWCA was created to bring new life to the organization, explore the role of the student YWCA and ensure that the movement remains vibrant, active, functional and relevant. It is both a philosophical and organizational study. The commission's reports set the background and share the results and recommendations of the commission. Additional materials include working papers, meeting minutes and correspondence.
