Abstract

The South Dakota Board of Regents is the constitutional governing board for the six South Dakota universities and two special schools. The collection is composed of minutes and materials published by the South Dakota Board of Regents and collected by the office of the president and various other department at South Dakota State University.

Historical Note

In 1890, the new legislature agreed to a governing board for higher education in the state. A nine-member Board of Regents appointed by the governor was established as the Regents of Education. These regents were to govern alongside each university's Board of Trustees, which had most of the power over individual institutions.

The dual system of control was carried on for six years, until the South Dakota Legislature became aware of the problems of the two-board system. In November 1896, the South Dakota Constitution was amended to name a five-member Board of Regents, which would be in control of all educational institutions in the state.

Today, after a number of further structural changes, the Board of Regents consists of nine members, including a student regent. Terms of office are for six years, with the exception of the student who serves for only two. The Board of Regents is the constitutional governing board for the six South Dakota universities and two special schools. The Board approved budgets, faculty appointments, salaries and curricula to name a few of its roles.
