The idea of an NDSU center to benefit members of North Dakota cooperatives originated within the cooperatives themselves, and in October 1988, the Joint Cooperative Education Committee endorsed the concept. The Committee stated that such a center would be "a major step towards educating young people about cooperatives and preparing them for cooperatives careers." The effort to develop a Center for Cooperatives at NDSU was in response to those grassroots initiatives. The creation of the Quentin N. Burdick Center for Cooperatives was approved by the North Dakota Board of Higher Education in October 1992.

North Dakota is home to over 500 cooperatives that include sectors such as electricity, telecommunications, credit unions, finance, and agriculture.  These cooperatives are vital to the state's economy.

The Quentin N. Burdick Center for Cooperatives understands the importance of cooperatives and strives to provide educationresearch, and outreach that will bring about strengthening the cooperatives' operations and working toward expanding employment and economic opportunities through cooperatives.
