Student Cooperative Organizers Handbook
by North American Students of Cooperation (NASCO)

The Student Cooperative Organizer’s Handbook is a comprehensive guide to creating group-equity housing cooperatives. By explaining the cooperative movement, campus and community organizing, nonprofit incorporation, financing, and housing development, this important resource demystifies a challenging project.

This Student Cooperative Handbook is an essential resource for the student or community organizer focusing on housing issues as well as an informative and illuminating read for people concerned about affordable housing and college accessibility.

NASCO organizes and educates affordable group equity co-ops and their members for the purpose of promoting a community oriented cooperative movement. For nearly 50 years, NASCO and its affiliates have been working with students, worker-owners, activists, and community members who are interested in applying cooperative principles to meet their needs and fulfill their various missions.
