International Student Service, American Committee records

 Collection 0035-MDHC
The International Student Service was created in 1919 to aid in the relief of poverty-stricken universities and to promote student consciousness. Programs included general appeals, conferences, institutes, and publications, as well as the promotion of self-help, attempts to reduce education costs, and organized study and research in specific areas. The collection includes materials on work camps, conferences, loans, discrimination, hostels, student unions, and the Civilian Conservation Corps. Formerly known as the International Student Service, American Committee archives, the collection assumed its current name in 2018.
