Albrecht, pastor of St. Paul's congregation in New Ulm.and president of the Minnesota Synod, the new college was located in New Ulm and was ready for dedication and occupancy in the fall of 1884. The second phase of the history of the college 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 college for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption for more than ninety years. 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 organic union in 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 and a two-veer college course were adopted, both of which were open to male students only. The need for women teachers caused the school to' become co-educational in 1896. The preparatory department was expanded to a four-year high school in 1919, 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 was realized with the graduation of the first three-year class in 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. The first four-year class was graduated in 1954. As a result of a synodical resolution in 1962 the separation of the high .school from the college, each under its own administration, was effected. Both schools continued to use the same facilities. In 1978 the Synod resolved to move the high school to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. Dr. Martin Luther College is now a four-year teacher education college which grants the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. 9
The existence and function of Dr. Martin Luther College rest on unalterable convictions regarding man, as drawn from the God-given Holy Scriptures.
We believe man to be the crown of God's creation. As such, he was made to know God and to share His comPURPOSE pany. He was endowed with gifts that permitted him to become acquainted with, enjoy the use of, and find cause for wonder and gratitude in everything that God fashioned for human service and del ight. We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness in man which compels him to oppose his gracious Creator. In sin we find the underlying cause for all evil. Sin ruptured the Creator's design for man, frustrated the creation's service to man, and fixed on man a guilt and helplessness from which God alone could set him free. This He did through His Son, the God-Man Jesus Christ, who entered human history and restored the Creator's eternal design for man. In the historical verities of the person and work of Jesus Christ as unfolded in the Scriptures, we find the basis for our Christian assurance that man, the sinner was redeemed and reconciled to God to share His company in this life and in the life to come. As believers in Christ we count ourselves people of high privilege imbued with a gratitude to our Savior-God that shapes our lives in every direction and that enables us to carry out our various God-given responsibilities: to ourselves-the duty to cultivate our potentialities divine gifts to be used to the glory of God;
of body and soul as
to our fellowman as our equal before God-the obligation to proclaim the freedom-bringing truth in Christ and to assist him in whatever other manner we have opportunity; to the world apart from man-the respect that recognizes all created things as gifts of God to be investiqated, used, or enjoyed in a manner that harmonizes with divine design. These Christ-centered convictions guide us in every sphere of human thought and achievement. Thus, we view the study of man and his culture, together with the pursuit of other knowledge, as not only beneficial but obligatory. We humans have been appointed lords of all things; although weakened by sin, we are still enjoined to search out whatever is useful and wholesome in this life so that in our whole being we may continually draw nearer to the potential for which God made us.
We engage in this pursuit not merely for its own sake or to contribute to the kind of wisdom by which man hopes to overcome the deep problems of human existence on earth. Our pursuit of knowledge is aimed primarily at growing in the wisdom which God teaches in His Word: first, that through the study of man and his culture we may see in broad context man's persistent weaknesses and failings, and his continuing need for the Savior; second, that despjte the crippling effects of sin we may appreciate the wide range of man's God-given talents for doing, thinking, and speaking what is beautiful, praiseworthy, profound, and mentally and emotionally satisfying; third,
that we may come away from this experience
with a larger under-
standing of God's ways among men and a heightened goodness, and wisdom of God.
awe for the majesty,
These convictions regarding God and man are cherished by the teachers and students of Dr. Martin Luther College as well as by the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod who own and maintain the college. These convictions are the reasons for the existence of the Synod and all of its schools. Because these convictions derive from divinely revealed truth, we count it our Godgiven responsibility to share them with every man and to impress them on each new generation of the church. Indeed, because of these convictions, we equate education with Christian education, which puts all learning and wisdom into the perspective of Christ and His Word. Si~ce this requires the service of Christimbued educators, all who are called to teach in the schools of our Synod are expected to share our Christ-centered convictions knowledgeably and to demonstrate them by the testimony of their lives. At the same time, our Christian duty to church and society obligates us to staff the schools of the Synod with educators sufficiently competent in whatever other learning is necessary for meaningful nd responsible life in today's world.

In discharging this trust, the faculty recognizes a continuing responsibility for improvement through private study, through further study at other places of learning, through attendance at meetings of scholarly societies, and through participation in various in-service programs on the campus. These are encouraged not only for personal satisfaction but also for effective classroom instruction. By demonstrating a respect for continued scholarship and by the example of personal dedication, the faculty hopes to encourage among the students the love for learning, the spirit of inquiry, and the cultivation of wider intellectual horizons that characterize a wholesome college atmosphere.

its work on the basis of truths enunciated in the Word of God. Thus, the college is obligated to show concern for every student's well-being under Christ, and every student has the responsibility to give respect and obedience to the school and its policies. Christian
at Dr. Martin Luther College is nurtured
lar formal worship that draws its message directly from the God-given Scriptures. Worship services are held every academic day to edify the whole college family and to rehearse
in which school learning
and life are unified.
For the further training of the whole person under Christ, Dr. Martin Luther College encourages student participation in programs of physical and cultural activity, and in student government. These programs, intended primarily for the benefit of students, also serve, edify, and provide recreation for the entire campus family, the local community, and the church-at-larqe. In their role of subservience to the school's chief task, non-academic activities are also organized and administered
with the spirit of Christ.
In its total educational program Dr. Martin Luther College views its faculty as more than an instrument to aid students in acquiring knowledge. The faculty member is expected to serve as student adviser in academic matters and as Christian counselor in other capacities where assistance is desirable or mandatory. Dr. Martin Luther College further sees the general well-belr > of school and stu-
dent body strengthened and preserved by strong and in all aspects of student IÂˇife-an interest which the able with students, by attending or participating setting students an example of a God-pleasing life

Thus, in every aspect of school life, Dr. Martin Luther College seeks to fulfill its assignment: to furnish the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod with teacher candidates thoroughly qualified for discharging the high responsibilities of Christian education in a manner that is God-pleasing and worthy of the world's respect. Such preoccupation with teacher education awakens a variety of auxil iary enterprises whereby the school and its faculty freely serve both their constituency and the general public. As the only teacher education institution of the church it serves, Dr. Martin Luther College recognizes an obligation to furnish educational leadership to that church in whatever manner the faculty's resources of scholarship and professional expertise can be utilized. Dr. Martin Luther College also stands ready to give of its time and its facilities to church and society wherever and whenever this may be done without sacrificing its assignment or compromising its Christian principles.

Dr. Martin Luther College is also aware of current trends in the field of elementary education and particularly of the increased emphasis in certain disciplines. The curriculum, therefore, makes provision for areas of concentration, currently in five disciplines. Other programs are also under study so that the college may continue to exercise the kind of education leadership the Synod has every right to expect of it.
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, Milwaukee, 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 property acquisitions, 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.
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 stated philosophy and principles of the college. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibil ities in these areas through regularly scheduled meetings.

It is composed of the division heads, the registrar, and the vice president for academic affairs who is the chairman. This council is responsible to the faculty and the president.

A student on probation shall discuss with his adviser the desirability of reducing his course load to aid him in acquiring good standing. If the course load is reduced, consultation between the student and his adviser and the advice of the registrar will determine the course(s) to be dropped. In the interest of the student as well as in the interest of maintaining academic standards of the school, a student on probation shall also discuss with his adviser the extent of his extra-class activities and outside employment. For participation in such activities and employment, both of which can make increased demands on the student's time, the student shall secure the approval of a review committee consisting of the student's adviser, the vice president for student affairs, and the vice president for academic affairs. 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 will be approved for emergency or substitute teaching. REPETITION OF COURSES - A student must earn credit in a course which 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, in extraordinary circumstances, through the Dr. Martin Luther College correspondence program.
CREDIT HOUR LOAD - To be classified as full-time. a student must be enrolled in at least twelve hours for credit. The maximum academic load per semester is as follows:
Freshmen: 16'h hours; sophomores: 19'h hours; juniors: 19 hours; seniors: 18 hours. A student may be permitted to carry an additional course if he has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or better and if other conditions make this advisable. Such permission is obtained by the student from his adviser and the registrar. A student may register to audit a course if he is a student in good standing and has the consent of his adviser. the instructor of the class he wishes to audit, and the registrar. An audit may be changed to a course being taken for credit if the student has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 and makes such change for credit in the time allowed. Procedures for withdrawing from a course taken for audit are identical to those followed when withdrawing from a course taken for credit. CHANGE IN COURSE REGISTRATION - A student may make a change in course registration through the first two weeks of the semester with the approval of his adviser and the registrar. ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATION - High school students who receive a grade of three, four, or five in the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Test may receive college credit. For particular details, the high school student should write to the registrar. TYPING PROFICIENCY - Proficiency in typing is required of students in the performance of their academic work. Students may fulfill this requirement in one of several ways: 1. by presenting evidence of having successfully completed course, business or personal, before entering college, or
a formal typing

WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES - A student may withdraw from a. course with the approval of his adviser, the instructor of the course, and the registrar. Withdrawal from a keyboard course requires also the approval of the music division chairman. Such withdrawals may be made without academic penalty during the first three weeks of a semester. After the first three weeks and up to midsemester, withdrawal may be permitted under special circumstances. For such courses the student's record will show either WP (withdrawal passing) or WF
(withdrawal failing). Neither the WP nor the WF will be counted in computing the grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a course will be recorded as an F. Such an F will be counted in the grade point average.
WITHDRAWAL FROM COLLEGE - The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must report first to his adviser for instructions on procedu res. When a student does not follow official procedures in voluntarily withdrawinq from the college, a note recording the unauthorized withdrawal will be transcribed on the student's permanent record. Students are not permitted to withdraw officially during the last two weeks of any semester.
ENTRANCE INTO THE PROGRAM - Because Dr. Martin Luther College offers a single program gi education to prepare elementary teachers for the R"bljs mioiยง!rY of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, a student pursues the prescribed teacher education program.
PROGRAM POLICIES REGARDING THE PROFESSIONAL SEMESTER - The professional semester makes up one semester of the senior year. One half of that semester is devoted to student teaching, and the other half is devoted to professional education course work. The following. policies apply to students entering the professional semester: 1. Students register for student teaching early in the second semester of the junior year. 2. Before students register for student teaching, the faculty will determine their eligibility to do so.

LIFE General Policies Student Services Financial Aids Student Activities
SPI~ITUAL LI FE OF THE STUDENT - Student life is to be Christian life, an outward expression of inward, Spirit-worked GENERAL faith in Christ. Because such faith needs continuous nourishment, life at Dr. Martin Luther College is centered in the Word POLICIES 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 the evening of each school day in the chapel-auditorium. These devotions are designed to focus the Iight of the Word on student Iife and on the students' future vocation, as well as to meet their over-all spiritual needs: Students are expected to attend Sunday services and chapel services regularly. CLASS ATTENDANCE - Dr. Martin Luther College requires regular class attendance. Each absence from class is recorded and must be accounted for by the student. The calendar for the school year determines class days and vacation periods. Early departures and late returns at vacation time are not to be requested unless emergencies or very clear cut and acceptable reasons exist. 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 r:ecessary 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 pol icies and procedures. These pol icies and procedures are summarized in the student handbook. The vice president for student affairs, particularly in his function as campus pastor, concerns himself with campus life and activity so that they are consistent with a Christian profession. He and the dean of women, together with their staffs, function to serve in the most effective ways the best interests of the individual student. HOUSING - Except for those students whose home is in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervisior.. 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 Christmas and Easter vacations. On graduation day, students are expected to be checked out of the dormitories by 5: 00 p.m. (See p. 19 for information about individual dormitories.) PERSONAL BELONGINGS - The colleqe provides bed and mattress for each student. Besides personal effects, the student provides mattress pad, pillow, blankets, bedspread. The student also provides a desk lamp, unless assigned to Hillview or Summit Halls.
The college cannot and does not carry insurance on the student's personal possessions. If there is concern about such coverage, it may be advisable for the student
to check with the family's
Linen service is available
to all students
for the school year, payable
in full at time of registration. Each student receiving linen service will be furnished freshly laundered, each week, two sheets, one pillow. case, two large bath towels, one small hand towel, and two wash cloths. The college feels that this is the most convenient, economical, and healthy method of providing the student's linen and towel needs and urqes all resident students to take advantage of it. Stu-
dents not using the linen service will furnish and launder their own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. Laundry facilities are available on the campus. The college operetes a bank system for the students' convenience. MOTOR VEHICLES - Use of motor vehicles by resident students is permitted when in conformity with established policies. A request to register a motor vehicle is to be made of the vice president for student affairs at least two weeks before the vehicle is to be brought to campus. Motor vehicle privileges entail payment of each semester's - costs in advance, a $15.00 registration fee, and proofof adequate insurance coverage for passengers. More specific information regarding the, possession and use of motor vehicles is available upon request from the office of the vice president for student affairs.
ORIENTATION - An orientation program is conducted during the first days of each school year and is continued at regular intervals during the first semester. The purpose of the program is to provide information relating to student life and responsibilities at Dr. Martin Luther College. All incoming freshmen and all transfer students are involved in this program.
COUNSELING - Each student is assigned a faculty member as an adviser. The adviser assists in selecting the area of concentration and course electives. The student is encouraged to utilize every aspect of the counseling program. Personal problems may also be discussed with the adviser as well as with the vice president for student affairs or dean of women, both of whom maintain daily office hours. In keeping with the Christian family concept, grade reports are sent to parents at the end of each semester. In addition, mid-semester evaluations of freshmen are provided, designed primarily to indicate adjustment to college life. Since me college is concerned about its students and their performance, preparing as they are for fulltime service in the church, and since students are accepted by the college only upon written recommendation of their pastors, pastors of those students who are experiencing difficulties may be consulted in order to serve the students' spiritual and academic best interests.
HEALTH SERVICES - This unit is staffed by two registered nurses who have on file the completed health data and physical examination forms required of all entering students. A medical fee to cover authorized medical bills is assessed at the time of registration along with other fees. Thereby medical coverage, exclusive of interscholastic sports and ski club activities, is provided for those involved in any sanctioned on-campus or off-campus activities. Normally the maximum coverage is $100.00. For extended coverage the college makes available a voluntary group medical and hospital program offered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield.
DRA~TICS, CONCERTS, AND LECTURES - The academic community of the college presents cultural and educational events throughout the year. Numerous musical events are scheduled: recitals by staff members, solo performances by advanced students in organ and piano, and concerts by the choral and band organizations. From time to time outstanding artists are engaged..for campus performances. In addition to frequent displays by various academic divisions, the college sponsors an annual lyceum series, representing various fields 01 interest. Mankato State University, Gustavus Adolphus College, and colleges in the Twin Cities, the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Symphony, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, and the annual visit of the Metropolitan Opera Company offer excellent opportunities for cultural growth. Dr. Martin Luther College, vitally concerned with the financial problems of its students and their families, is well aware that rliIsingcosts of education place a strain on many family budqers, Like most colleges, Dr. Martin Luther College beAIDS lieves that the primary responsibility for financing a college education rests upon the student and his family. However, the c()st of preparing an individual for work in the public ministry is shared by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod through a subsidization of more than 50% of the annual operating cost. Financial assistance is available for every student who, without such help, would be unable to attend college. The assistance consists of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and work opportunities. Eligibility for assistance is based upon need and academic promise. Need is defined as the difference between the total educational cost and the amount which the student and his family should be able to provide.
- The scholarships awarded by the college represent a recognition of ability and promise. These awarcis are made only to students who have demonstrated excellence in scholastic achievement and Christian citizenship. The student does not apply for a scholarship but is selected by the faculty on the basis of achievement.
GRANTS-IN-AID - The bulk of the assistance program is designed to meet student need through grants-in-aid. To become eligible, students must make application for such assistance forms can be obtained.

BASIC CURRICULUM - Dr. Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Christian day schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, the college offers one basic curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree.
The first two years of th is program provide the student with a broad general education. The final two years add to general education, but they also include speci-alization 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, science, 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.
