The purpose of the SDSU Advisory Council was to bring about a clearer understanding of the objectives, activities, problems and needs of South Dakota State University as related to the needs of the State of South Dakota.
The primary function of the council was to consult with the university administration concerning objectives, problems and needs of the university, to study such subjects from the point of view of the citizens and the public welfare, and to place its conclusions before the university administration and through appropriate channels to the citizens of the state.
This council did not operate as a legislative lobby, nor did it supplant any existing organization concerned with special phases of the college activities.
The Advisory Council comprised of members from all over the state representing many forms of business.
This collection is composed of meeting packets that were distributed to members of the council at each meeting. Included in these packets are membership lists, statistics, departmental reports, departmental publications, resolutions passed at previous meetings, presentations made, and leaflets stating the results from annual meetings. Also included is a 1969 newsletter stating the results from the annual meeting of that year.
