Administrative history

Prior to 1960, administration of academic programs and issues at South Dakota State College was left to those departments or areas in need. In 1960, the growing administrative duties were consolidated under the new position of Dean of Academic Affairs. In 1973, this title was changed to Vice President of Academic Affairs. This new title better reflected the position's importance in the university hierarchy. A similar position, Vice President for Administration (formerly known as Assistant to the President), was created at the same time and is responsible for administrative offices and programs within the university. / The Vice President for Academic Affairs answers directly to the president of the university. Deans of all colleges within the university answer directly to the Vice President. These include Arts and Science, Agriculture and Biological Sciences, Family and Consumer Sciences, Engineering, Nursing, Pharmacy, General Registration, Education and Counseling, and the Graduate School. The Dean of Libraries also answers to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. / The purpose of this office is to deal with all aspects of academic affairs, including curriculum, faculty development, scholarship requirements, advising, honorary degrees, and dishonesty appeal.
