Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the formation, work and end of the University Christian Movement (UCM), the successor organization to the National Student Christian Federation. Described in an article from the "Presbyterian Survey" as a "loose federation of student groups interested in social change," the UCM united local student Christian groups behind shared goals and facilitates information sharing and learning. Minutes and reports of UCM assemblies document the movement's directions, program and emphases and their decision making process. The relationship between the UCM and the National Student YWCA and its local student associations is explored and defined in resolutions and reports. Additional documents include minutes of the UCM Advisory Committee concerning the end of the UCM, reports from the "Cleveland Week of Process," and experimental conference for students, and documents concerning the UCM's inception including its articles of operation.
