Constitution of the Young Women's Christian Association
Date: 
September 1913

Included in the 1913 student handbook, published by the Christian associations, is the full constitution of the Young Women's Christian Association. Prior to 1913 only parts of the YWCA constitution were printed in the student handbook. The constitution included information on membership, meetings, Bible study, mission study, missionary work, conventions, student conferences, and its mission statement. Article II of the constitution states that the object of the organization "shall be the development of Christian character in its members and the persecution of active Christian work particularly among the young women of the institution." Margaret M. Thompson held the position as president during the academic year of 1913-1914. Vice-president was filled by Mabel E. Krall, Kathryn M. Hodson held the position as secretary, and finally Helene Nelson acted as treasurer.
