FOR 1973'"'-



This lifesize statue of Dr. Martin Luther has been placed in the lobby of the library bui Iding. -It shows Luther standing in meditation behind a lectern. On the lectern is a Bible with the inscription, "The just shall live by faith." The donors of the statue their husband and father,

are Mrs. Paul Schwan and her children in memory Mr. Paul T. Schwan of Marshall, Minnesota.


The carving of the statue was done by Mr. George Keilhofer of the Schnitzelbank Shop in Frankenmuth, Michigan. He personally brought and supervised the setting up of the statue on October 4,1972. It is hoped that the statue will be a reminder to all who enter the library of the diligence and faithfulness of one whose concern is also theirs - the dissemination of the Word of salvation.

HISTORY Minnesota Synod Although Dr. Martin Luther College is now owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, the actual founder was the Evangel ical Lutheran Synod of Minnesota and other States. At its 1883 convention the Minnesota Synod resolved to establish an educational institution for the purpose of supplying ministers of the Gospel to its congregations and mission fields. Besides the ministerial course, other courses were to be included in the curriculum of the institution. Through the zeal of the Rev. C. J. Albrecht, the pastor of St. Paul's congregation in New Ulm and also the president of the synod, the new college was located in New Ulm and was ready for dedication and occupancy in the fall of 1884.

Wisconsin Synod The second phase of the school's history began eight years later. In 1892 the Minnesota Synod entered into a close federation with the like-minded Wisconsin and Michigan Synods for a more effective stewardship of resources. At that time Dr. Martin Luther College became the teacher training institution for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption to the present time. After the Nebraska synod in 1904, the union, then known other States, later, Lutheran Synod.

District Synod had become the fourth member of the joint federation developed into an organ ic union by 1917. This as the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Wisconsin and in 1959, assumed the name of the Wisconsin Evangelical

At the time of the federated merger, a three-year preparatory curriculum was adopted together with a two-year college course, both of which were open to ma Ie students on lv. In 1896, however, the need for women teachers caused the school to become co-educational. In 1919 the preparatory department was expanded to a four-year high school while the two-year college curriculum was retained with the hope of expansion to a four-year college as soon as possible. The first of two steps in expansion became a reality with the graduation of the first three-year class, the class of 1931. The completion of the expansion was thwarted to such a degree by the effects of the great depression and by World War II that the addition of the fourth year was not accomplished until 1950, with the first four-year class graduating in 1954. As a result of a synodical resolution in 1962 the separation 11

of the high school from the college, each under its own administration, was effected although both schools continue to use the same facilities as heretofore. Dr. Martin Luther College is now a four-year teacher training college which grants the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education with transfer recognition by the University

of Minnesota.

PRINCIPLES AND PURPOSES Principles Dr. Martin Luther College, the four-year teacher-education institution of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, exists in fulfillment of pedagogical principles based on the Word of God. These declare that education is inseparable from religion. They demonstrate that all knowledge in all areas of human thought and endeavor is worthy of inquiry when viewed in the light of human sin and divine grace. They assert that such evaluation of all things is granted alone through the God-revealed Wisdom of the Bible, the God-man Jesus Christ. They affirm that education, a basic function of the Christian home, is also a con- . cern of the church, namely, to equip the entire person in mind, body, and spirit for time and for eternity. Purpose Dr. ,Martin Luther College, in the eighty-nine years of its existence has witnessed many changes in. personnel, plant, and facilities. Yet amid the numerous changes one aspect has remained unchanged: the purpose for the college's existence. Its one function still is to serve the church, specifically the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It does this by educating men and women exclusively for the teaching ministry in keeping with its expressed philosophy, principles, and purposes. Hence its students are specially prepared for the ministry of the Word in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Objectives 1. To inculcate as a primary qualification a consecrated spirit of love to Christ and the fellowman which is gained alone through searching the Scriptures, the faithful record of God's will to save all men. 2. To develop an academic competence drawn from a learning experience sufficiently broad and deep for acquiring the attitudes and skills that will meet the high standards of Christian education and Christian responsibility to society, and including familiarity and facility with the techniques and tools of teaching. 12

3. To instill a willingness to render assistance in the worship program of the congregation especially since our Lutheran heritage of music in the service of Christian faith emphasizes the need for developing an ability to play and to conduct appropriate church music. Policies

In carrying out these objectives, Dr. Martin Luther College seeks to provide a Christ-centered school atmosphere for spiritual growth. Every academic subject is taught from a background of ~onviction for Christian truth. The total school experience of the student is guided by the Word of God. Teaching competence is sought through a curriculum which undergirds the courses in professional methods, student teaching, and applied music with a strong program of study in literature, science, and the arts.

Indispensable to the entire teaching and learning experience at Dr. Martin Luther College is a thorough foundation in Holy Scripture, in history, and in the heritage of the man of God from whom Dr. Martin Luther College takes its name. All students are committed to intensive study of the Bible as the only source and norm of absolute truth. From the divine portrayal of sin and grace in Holy Scripture, from the record of God's continued manifestation of wisdom and love throughout history, and from the theological and liturgical treasures inherited from Martin Luther, students are led to the proper evaluation of human achievement and human fai lure by which their educational endeavors can contribute most to the glory of God and the welfare of the individual and the community, the Church and the world. Function

Consistent with its principles and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College endeavors to serve the educational needs of the constituency operating and maintaining it. To this end, its scholastic program, though unified in purpose, is fourfold in structure. Its regular sessions offer a four-year teacher education course enabling .graduates, with full synodical certification, to teach in the Christian day schools of the Wis¡ consin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. By means of annual summer sessions it affords opportunity to work toward gaining the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education as well as to continue studies after graduation. The synodical certification program offers those who have on Iy the required academic background an opportunity to take the religion courses required for gaining the status of a certified teacher in the Synod. The summer school curriculum is always arranged with this in mind. It is primarily in the interest of synodical certification that a 13

Dr. Martin Luther College is likewise aware of the current trends in the field of elementary education and particularly of the increased emphasis in certain disciplines. These factors, together with the conviction that a curriculum permitting concentration in certain areas is beneficial for 'graduates, have occasioned the recent revision of the curriculum. Other programs are also under study so that the college may continue to exercise the ki nd of educational leadership the Synod has every right to expect of it.

The Music Center: where students and teachersmake "beautiful music" ORGANIZATION Administrative Organization Dr. Martin Luther College is owned, operated, and maintained by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod .. This church body has its headquarters at 3512 West North Avenue, MiIwaukee, Wisconsin 53208. The administration of the college is vested in a board of control elected by the Synod in convention. This board consists of three pastors, two male teachers, and two laymen. Briefly stated, the Board of Control is responsible for the calling of faculty personnel; for decisions regarding major curriculum revisions; for propertyacquisitions, building construction, and major maintenance items; and for the establishment of general policies under which the college is to operate. The Board of Control discharges most of its functions in consultation with and through the president of the college who represents the faculty and is directly responsible to the Board and to the Synod. 14



Faculty The faculty is primarily concerned with the academic life of the institution and with such policies as are an integral part of campus life in keeping with the college's stated philosophy and prlnciptes. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibilities in these areas through regularly scheduled meetings. Academic Council The work of the various academic divisions. within the college is co-ordinated through the Academic Counci I. It is composed of the division beads, the registrar, and the academic dean who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and its president. Committees VafiOU5functions of the faculty are carried on through committee assignments. The standing committees : Academic Council - Vice President for Academic Affairs, chm.; T. J. Hartwiq, J. E.

Dr. Martin Luther College has Transfer Recognition by the University of Minnesota. The University Senate in 1968 resolved to "grant Dr. Martin Luther College Transfer Recognition, i.e., provide for the transfer of satisfactorily cornpleted credits, appropriate to the programs to which a student may be admit¡ ted." This resolution reaffirmed a status in effect since 1963. Dr. Martin Luther College is on the list of schools recognized by the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare. It is approved under Public Law 550 (Korean Veterans) and under the Serviceman's Readjustment Act of 1944 as amended; it is also approved for nonimmigrant foreign students by the Immigration Service of the United States Department of Justice. The college is a member of the Association of Minnesota Colleges.


New Ulm, an attractive and beautifully located city of over 13,000 inhabitants, is situated in the south central section of Minnesota 100 miles southwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul. It is accessible by two major highways, US 14 and State, 15, and by daily bus service with connections to all parts of the UnitedStates via Mankato. Commercial air travel is available at the International Terminal, Minneapolis-St. Paul, with connecting bus service directly to the airport arriving there at 2:45 p.m. and from the airport to New Ulm leaving at 5:30 p.m. The NewUlrn Flight Service operates daily flights Monday through Friday to the airport at 6:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. arriving at 7: 1 a.m. 'and 5:40 p.m. and from the airport to New Ulm at 10:00 a.m. and 7: 15 p.m. Student standby fares are available. This service operates from Gate 37 on the Green Concourse.


Campus The fiftv-acre campus with an unusual natural setting lies on a wooded' range of hills overlooking the city. It is truly a park, softening the austere lines generally associated with a complex of institutional buildings. Across the street from the campus is located Hermann Park and adjacent to it Westside Park with fine recreational facilities. Expansive Flandrau State Park, with good hiking, picnic, and camping areas, is situated within easy walking distance of the campus. 16


for Instruction

and Administration

The one building in which the college carried out its mission in the first twentyfive vears of its existence is now but one of a complex of buildings. Thirteen buildings at present stand on the campus; five of them were constructed since 1962.

Academic Center Erected in 1928 at a cost of $328,000 and remodeled and enlarged in 1968 for twice that sum, the Academic Center is used for classrooms and assemblies. Its well appointed auditorium accommodates nine hundred persons and provides a worshipful setting for the daily chapel services. In the spring of 1971 a Casavant Freres pipe organ with thirty-one stops, forty-two ranks, three manuals and pedal was installed. In the instructional areas there are classrooms, lecture rooms, a science suite, and an art unit. The area formerly used for the library has become a bookstore, where one can purchase textbooks, paper backs, music, DMLC labeled wearing apparel items, and miscellaneous gift items.

Old Main The first building on campus, Old Main, dedicated in 1884, now is the administration center of the campus. On the first floor are the offices of the president, vice president for academic affairs, registrar, vice president for student affairs, dean of women, director of special services, director of student teaching, recruitment director, financial aids officer, department chairmen/and the business offices. The facili,ties for the campus health service, faculty offices, and offices of Martin Luther Academy are on the second floor, The college print shop is located on the ground level floor. An office for the Collegiate Council is located on the third floor.

Music Cen ter Built in 1962 at a cost of $450,000 the Music Center provides outstanding facilities for a well-balanced music curriculum necessary to the preparation of qualified students for the teaching ministry. It contains class and lecture rooms, music studios, piano and organ practice rooms, band rehearsal room, and choir rehearsal room. The Music Center and Practice Hall provide a combined number of thirty-eight pianos and sixteen organs. In addition there are three electronic organs and sixteen electronic pianos on campus with a teacher console, the latter being used for beginning instruction.

Luther Memorial Union Dedicated in 1968, Luther Memorial Union, built-at a cost of $1,500,000 and made possible through the generous response of the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod to the Missio Deo Offering, has become a center of campus activity. This building provides multiple facilities: a large gymnasium which can also be used as a large auditorium, the kitchen and cafeteria, and the student

Library The new library was dedicated on October 17, 1971. It is a two-level building surrounded by a shallow dry moat with ramps leading to the main entrance on the second level, facing the Academic Center. The 'upper level has a spacious lobby with a circulation desk, card catalog, index table, bulletin boards, and display cases. On this level is also found a large work area provided with carrels and work stations, a lounge area, the current magazine and newspaper shelves, and the reserve book circulation area. In addition there is a' working area for the staff to receive and process new acquisitions to the library, the librarian's office, a freight elevator, and a room for the librarv staff.

Two distinctive objects to notice in the library are - the life-sized wood carving of Dr. Martin Luther seen as you enter the library and the stain-glass windows 18

above the library's entrance. The former was a gift of the Paul Schwan family in memory of Mr. Paul Schwan. The latter are a gift of the DMLC Alumni and Friends Society. Scattered throughout the upper level are low island shelves for reference volumes. There is also a small conference room. The . lower level houses the book stacks, allowing an eventual capacity of 100,000 volumes. At present the library has over 30,000 entries including government pamphlets, the curriculum library, the music library, and children's books. A media center is being developed which will provide new instructional materials and the facilities for the production and Use of varied audio-visual materials. In addition, there are a seminar room, a faculty carreled study area, and typing rooms. Student Housing The majority of the students live in campus dormitories. It has not been possible, however, to provide on-campus housing for all students. The college has arranged for off-campus housing in private homes, most of which are a convenient distance from the campus. Junior and senior men and women are assigned to these by the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Dean of Women.

Summit Hall Built in 1911 and enlarged in 1926, Summit Hall is a residence for 180 male students. This recently remodeled building is being completely refurnished over a period of years.

Grade Point Average A grade point system is used as a convenient method of determining whether a student has done work of C average. In our system the semester hour is defined as one class period fifty minutes per week for one semester. 25

A student's average is expressed by the ratio between the number of semester hours taken and the number of grade points earned. This ratio is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of sernester hours taken. A minimum ratio of 2.000 is required for graduation. A student cumulative

ACADEMIC POLICIES Incompletes The temporary grade (Incomplete) is granted when a student doing otherwise acceptable work is unable to complete the course assignments for reasons deemed cogent by the instructor. A first-semester Incomplete must be converted into a permanent grade by the end of the second semester, and a secondsemester Incomplete by the end of summer school, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F. Repetition of Courses A student must earn credit in a course that has been failed and is required for graduation either by repeating the course or by successfully completing an approved substitute. A course may also be repeated if a student desires to better his grade point average. The grade earned in repetition will be figured in the student's average, but the original grade will remain on the record. Courses taken to remove a failure or repeated to better the grade point average can be taken only in residence or through the Dr. Martin Luther College Correspondence Program. Academic Standing Academic standings are computed each semester on the basis of grade points earned to date. Both the semester grade-point average and the cumulative gradepoint average will be computed at the end of each semester and at the close of the summer session. To be a student in good academic standing, the student must earn the minimum semester as well as the minimum cumulative grade point average as indicated in the table below. MINIMUM

This review committee consisting of the student's adviser, the vice president for student affairs, and the vice president for academic affairs sha II establish a schedule of activities designed best to meet the academic and social needs of the individual student. Credits and grade points earned in residence during a summer session are added to those earned during the last semester of the student's attendance. They may apply toward the removal of an academic probation status. Only such undergraduates as have the status of student in good standing and a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 will be approved for emergency or substitute teaching. Credit Hour Load The normal average academic load per semester is as follows: Freshmen - 16'12 hours; Sophomores - 18'12 hours; Juniors - 17 to 18 hours; Seniors - 15 to 16 hours.

GENERAL Spiritual


Life of the Student

Student life is to be Christian life - an outward expression of inward, Spiritworked faith in Christ. Because such faith needs continuous nourishment, life at Dr. Martin Luther College is centered in the Word of God. Students attend divine services at St. John's or St. Paul's Lutheran Churches, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod churches in New Ulm. These congregations also invite the students to commune regularly at their altars. Chapel services are held in the morning and evening of each school day, in the college chapel-auditorium at which students are expected to attend. These devotions are designed to focus the light of the Word on student life- and on the student's future vocation, as well as to meet his over-all spiritual needs. Class Attendance Dr. Martin

Conduct A maturing Christian who is preparing for full-time work in his Savior's Church is expected to exercise an increasing degree of self-discipline and sound judgment. Hence it should not be necessary to surround him with a multitude of rules and regulations. Nevertheless, fruitful preparation for service in the Church requires the proper environment which develops from following certain fundamental policies and procedures. These in the student handbook.

Housing Except for those students whose home is in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. Since the dormitories are not large enough to house all students requiring resident accommodations, the college arranges for some offcampus housing. Students thus assigned pay the identical board and room fee to the college as those in the dormitories and are expected to conform to the same


general policies. Dormitories are closed during the Christmas and Easter vacations. On the day of graduation, si:udents are expected to be checked out of their dormitories by 5:00 p.m. Personal


A bed and mattress is provided by the college. Besides personal effects, the student provides a mattress pad, pillow, blankets, and a bed spread. Students will also provide a desk lamp unless they are assigned to Hiliview Hall. Linen service is provided and is available to all students at a cost of $32.50 for the entire school year, payable in full at the time of registration.

of the program is to give information about student life and student responsibilities at Dr. Martin Luther College. All members of the freshman class and all new students in other classes participate in this program. Counseling Each student has assigned to him a faculty member who acts as his advisor. The advisor assists him in selecting his area of concentration and course electives. The student is encouraged to consult with his advisor about his academic work and problems. Personal problems may also be discussed with the advisor as well as with the dean of students or dean of women who are available daily. For counseling in spiritual matters, students are asked to consult with the dean of students, who is the pastoral counselor for the student body. In order to maintain close ties with the home, grade reports are sent to parents or guardians at the end of each semester. In addition the college provides midsemester evaluations of freshmen. These mid-semester freshmen evaluations are designed primarily to indicate adjustment to college life and are sent to parents or guardians and to the pastors of the students.

aids are made

available to students who, without such help, would be unable to attend college. The aids consist of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and work opportunities which may be offered to the student. Eligibility for assistance is based on need and on academic promise. Need may be defined as the difference between the total cost of attendance and the amount which the student and his family should be able to provide.

Scholarships The scholarships awarded by the college represent a recognition of ability and promise. These awards are made only to such as have demonstrated excellence in scholastic achievement. In granting this assistance, the faculty deems citizen.ship a factor which dare not be omitted from consideration. The student does not apply for a scholarship but is selected by the faculty on the basis of his achievement.

Grants-in-A id The other parts of the assistance program are more closely related to the student's need. Students experiencing difficulty in financing their schooling may receive assistance by means of grants-in-aid. To become eligible the students must

Basic Curriculum Requirements Course Descriptions



Certification Summer School Correspondence Study

REGULAR SESSIONS Basic Curriculum Since Dr. Martin Luther College is maintained for the purpose of training ministers of religion to serve as teachers in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, it offers one basic curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The first two years of this program provide the student with a broad general education with the final two years adding to genera I education but a Iso including specialization in the field of education and a concentration in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select one are English, mathematics, music, and social studies. Included within the basic curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, students may in the future serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Piano and Organ

All students are required to earn two semester hours of credit in keyboard in the general education program. Keyboard work begins in the first semester of the freshman year. Students will begin keyboard work (piano or organ) at the level at which their previous experience places them. Placement will be determined by the music faculty. Students with little or no previous keyboard experience, who may not be able to meet the minimum requirements as set forth in Piano 1 and Piano.2, will be permitted, if necessary, as many as two additional semesters to complete the work. The minimum requirements are designed to indicate sufficient facility-to conduct classroom music and devotions. A semester of work not meeting the minimum requirements will receive either S if progress is satisfactory, or U if pr oqress is unsatisfactory. The greater part of instruction in both piano and organ is given on an individual lesson basis. A minimum of fifteen one-half hour lessons per semester is required in order to earn credit. Some instruction in beginning piano is given in a group situation with the class meeting two or three periods per week.


Students having completed Piano 2 or its equivalent may take organ instruction. Credit toward graduation will be granted for keyboard work required in the music concentration. Others may elect keyboard work if they have a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or better and the approval of their adviser and the Music Division Chairman.
