Former South Dakota State University President Robert T. Wagner died Monday at a Sioux Falls hospice. He was 78.
Wagner joined SDSU at Brookings as an assistant professor of rural sociology in 1971 and became a full professor in 1978. He was appointed the university's 17th president in 1985, a position he held until 1997.
Memorial services will be Jan. 25 at Calvary Cathedral in Sioux Falls and Jan. 27 at Emmanuel Church in Rapid City.
Upon retirement from SDSU, Wagner and his wife, Mary, moved to the Black Hills. She died in 2004.
SDSU renamed its Nursing, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Arts and Sciences building in honor of the couple.
