SDSBVI Departmental Organizational Chart

The SDSBVI is under the governance of the South Dakota Board of Regents, which is a division nominally within the Department of Education and Cultural Affairs. A Regent is appointed by the Governor for a six-year term and may be reappointed to successive terms. There are nine members of the Board, including one Student Regent.

They organize themselves and elect a president, vice president, and secretary from their memberships. The Board is reorganized into two committees: (A) Committee on Academic and Student Affairs, (B) Committee on Budget and Finance. Each Regent is assigned as a special representative of one of the institutions under the Board's jurisdiction. Each year a SDSBVI ceremonial Representative is appointed by the Board of Regents.
