The records of the North Carolina State University Chapter of the Southern Student Organizing Committee include an undated notice about the campus chapter organizational meeting, a newsletter regarding the campus traveler program, a copy of the May 2, 1969, Technician, a notice regarding prisoners held at the San Francisco Presidio Stockade, 67 pamphlets distributed by the Southern Student Organizing Committee headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, one other pamphlet, and a brochure. These materials represent a variety of concerns about domestic issues such as racism and sexism, education reform, power structure research, Appalachia, foreign policy and Vietnam, southern radicalism, the draft, and labor.

The Southern Student Organizing Committee, or SSOC, was an association of young Southerners dedicated to building a democratic society based on peace, as well as racial and sexual equality. The organization advocated development of a society in which free speech, unfettered inquiry, and economic cooperation would reflect a truly democratic America. The North Carolina State University chapter was organized with intent to change the basic injustices members saw within the existing power structure, both on campus and in the larger society. The organization was active during the late 1960s, but has since disbanded.
