The schools formed an independent institute in 1908 and then came under the jurisdiction of the Board of Regents of State Colleges in 1955. In 1971, Stout was designated by the Board of Regents as one of only two special mission universities in the UW System. Stout was to offer focused programs "related to professional careers in industry, technology, home economics, applied art and the helping professions."
