Documents concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s work with international students and the National Student Y.W.C.A.'s cooperation with international organizations. To encourage cooperative and inclusive student work, the Education Division of the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. devises a program of education to share information of general international culture and student needs and to respond to emphases decided at national conventions. In addition, to education programs, international student projects manuals and pamphlets provide information for how student members can contribute to the international student movements. The particular needs of international women college students studying in the United States are addressed in a report from the International Survey Group. Typical of the YWCA of the U.S.A., the National Student Y.W.C.A. cooperates with other organizations sharing similar purpose and aim for serving and furthering the rights of students. These organizations include the International Students' Association of the CIty of New York, the International Student Service and the International Union of Students. Documents include issues of the International Student Service bulletin, minutes of the first meeting of the International Students' Association of the City of New York and correspondence and reports from the International Union of Students.
