College News and Departmental Notes: The Student Volunteer Band
by Departmental notes - 1917
The professorship of education maintained in the Canton Christian College, China, is a concrete indication of the abiding interest which is taken by the students and faculty of Teachers College in the solution of world problems. The Student Volunteer Band is an agency through which, in another way, the influence of Teachers College will leave its impress on the life of peoples in all parts of the world. This organization has enrolled sixty-five members in Teachers College, of whom thirty-six are, technically speaking, Student Volunteers. The others are returned missionaries who have not signed the declaration card of the Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions; a few persons who have already been in some related activity abroad, or are planning definitely for it; and a number of foreign students who are looking forward to Christian service in their own lands. This composite membership should be kept in mind in making comparisons with data from other schools. To this total membership the School of Education has contributed thirty persons; there are, too, representatives of eleven different countries and of nine distinct religious denominations. This statement in itself will indicate the wide interests and the broad social sympathy which actuate the fifteen men and the fifty women who compose the Band.
