College and University Division staff meeting minutes and notes concern the staff needs, duties and division policies and procedure. Brief statistical reports present collected data on student association membership and program accompanied by some explanatory sections.

Additionally, notes and outlines from the two divisions document their work towards implementing the united practices. Documents concerning the Student Volunteer Movement include a brief history and overview of the movement, a summary of conference plans and notes on the relationship between the Student Volunteer Movement and the United Student Christian Council.
