The records of the University Religious Council date back to 1947, although the council is believed to have existed long before that. The main purpose of this organization was to promote religion and religious life at the University of North Dakota. The religious council was made up of one representative from each religious group on campus along with the YMCA and YWCA. The group also encouraged all campus religions and their programs. A main outreach event of the organization was Religious Emphasis Week which was a yearly event from at least 1947 to 1966.
