1917-18 Y.W.C.A. Constitution

September 1917

Included in the 1917-18 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 prosecution of active Christian work particularly among the young women
of the institution." The portraits of President Hazel Sanford and Vice-president Bessie Pengelly are printed in the handbook as well.
