Mission Statement

The South Dakota Humanities Council supports and promotes the exchange of ideas to foster a thoughtful and engaged society.

Description

The South Dakota Humanities Council (SDHC), founded in 1972 in response to an act of Congress, is the only cultural organization in the state whose sole mission is to deliver humanities programming to the people of South Dakota. As a steward of the state's cultural awareness and heritage, the Council cultivates statewide interest in South Dakota history, literature and other related humanities subjects, while stimulating an interest in the state's place as part of the universal human experience. This programming vision forms the core mission of SDHC--"to support and promote the exchange of ideas to foster a thoughtful and engaged society."

The staff and board of directors of SDHC envision a South Dakota:

  • Where we fulfill our essential human need to tell our stories, satisfy our curiosity, and take action in response to our vision of a better world.

  • Where we have the tools we need to participate fully in the cultural and civic life of our communities.

  • Where we celebrate the tapestry of life, family and place that make South Dakota unique and unifies us in our diversity.
