Dr. Martin Luther College Preparing Teachers for the Public Ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod


A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT It is interesting, yes even inspiring, to know that from the very beginning the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod - pastors, teachers and laymen have recognized and fostered two basic branches of the ministry of the Word which our Synod still cherishes and supports today. These two branches of ministry are the preaching of the Word (together with the administration of the sacraments) and the teaching of the saving truths to the children and youth of the church. In order to carry out this ministry the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod have established, maintain and support two colleges, one where future pastors receive their pre-theological instruction, namely, Northwestern College, Watertown, Wisconsin, and the other, Dr. Martin Luther College, where young men and women are prepared to serve the Lord in the teaching ministry. No matter what service an individual seeks to perform, preparation for such service is essential. The more involved or technical the service is, the greater the time needed to prepare for such service. Before a man was launched into space, much preparation was both necessary and demanded before the "zero hour" for launching drew near. Before a physician can operate on a patient, preparation involving many years of study and practical experience is necessary to perform that needed service. Before a musician will present a recital, hours, days, or months are needed to prepare for it, not to mention the years of study required before an individual reaches the point where he can perform on the concert stage. So it is with the teaching profession, with preparing young men and women to serve the Lord as teachers in the Lutheran schools of our Wisconsin Synod. Years of preparation, of training and educating, are vital. Students who enroll in Dr. Martin Luther College not only receive an education to perform a service, but also receive a thorough Christian education preparing them to become faithful servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. Dr. Martin Luther College is committed to assist young men and women to fit themselves for a life of service to their Lord, preparing them to serve Him as competent teachers in our Synod's churches and schools. The staffing of the faculty, the curriculum, the student activities, the physical facilities are so designed as to offer students a thorough and well-rounded program in preparation for the high calling of co-laborer with the Lord in service to the church. While students of Dr. Martin Luther College, upon graduation, receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education, they will recognize above all the wonderful love and grace of God in providing them with the necessary gifts to reach such a goal, as well as the privilege He grants them to enter into the work of the church and assist in carrying out the Savior's command, "Feed my Iambs." In the course of each academic year our prayer is that faculty and students alike may grow in grace and in the knowledge of God, as we strive to serve Him who has given His all for us. To Him alone be all glory! The material in this catalog will provide you with a brief history of the college, tell you about its purposes and objectives, acquaint you with the costs involved when enrolling here, give you a glimpse of student life and requirements, and describe the curriculum for the 1986-87 academic year. It is our hope and prayer that we may be able to serve you in the coming year.

Dean Arthur Schulz

"It is a statement of mission that makes this college unique among the almost 3,000 colleges and universities in our land. Unique because it serves the Wisconsin Synod, unique because its assignment focuses solely on the education and training of elementary teachers, and unique because the means to carry out this assignment, its curriculum and campus life, are built around the proclamation of Christ in the Scriptures."

In addition to his administrative duties as academic dean, Prof. Schulz teaches classes in children's literature and elementary school administration.

When asked about the implied incongruity of combining children's literature and administrative tasks, Schulz replied that teaching the course, which is popularized on campus as kid lit, "keeps you aware of the purpose of the institution."

History of the College Dr. Martin Luther College, now owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, was founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Minnesota and other States. During 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. Because of the zeal of the Rev. C. J. 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 the time Dr. Martin Luther College became the teacher education college for the newly formed joint synod, a function it has fulfilled without interruption for over ninety years. After the Nebraska District Synod had become the fourth member of the joint synod in 1904, the federation formally organized in 1917. This organization, then known as the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Wisconsin and other States, became the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod in 1959. At the time of the original merger in 1892, a three-year preparatory curriculum and a twoyear college course were adopted, both of which were open to male students only. The need for women teachers led 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 sidetracked by the effects of the great depression and by World War II. As a result 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 until the 1979-80 school year. In that year the high school, known as Martin Luther Academy, was moved to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and re-named Martin Luther Preparatory School.

Philosophy and Purpose 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 company. 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 delight.


We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness

in man which compels

him to oppose

cause for all evil. Sin

In sin we find the underlying

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 come.

As believers in Christ we count ourselves to our Savior-God

convictions guide us in every sphere of human thought and achieve-

as not only beneficial but obligatory. We humans have been appointed lords of

all things; although weakened and wholesome

by sin, we are still enjoined to search out whatever is useful

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 despite 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, praise-

worthy, profound, and mentally and emotionally


third, that we may come away from this experience

with a larger understanding


God's ways among men and a heightened awe for the majesty, goodness, and wisdom of God. 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 truth, we count it our God-given responsibility them on each new generation equate education perspective

SYNOD. To carry out this assignment Dr. Martin Luther College has built its curriculum and its program of student life around the proclamation

of Christ in the Scriptures.

In the curriculum all subjects find their unity in this proclamation,

especially through a select

group of required religion courses which deal with the Scriptures as the record of God's acts among men and the revelation of God's truths for all men and for all time. These divine acts and truths are viewed and pursued in the wider setting of man's history and cultural milieu through the ages because we hold that the proper understanding conversant

with the broad theater of human affairs, particularly


of man requires us to be in those places where the

of Christ has been historically most visible. Dr. Martin Luther College therefore

offers one basic curriculum of general education

courses in religion, music, science, mathematics,

and the hu-

manities; of area of concentration

courses selected from one of the following:

English, math-

ematics, music, science, and social studies; of professional

in the student a consecrated

spirit of love for God and His Word;

2. to educate the whole person for faithful, capable, intelligent citizenship

in today's

world; 3. to permit the student some beginning opportunity for personal experience

In matters regarding general student life, Dr. Martin Luther College carries out 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 citizenship

at Dr. Martin Luther College is nurtured also through regular formal

intended primarily for the benefit of students, also serve, edify,

Function Consistent with its philosophy and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College in its regular sessions offers a four year curriculum in elementary teacher education, culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and enabling graduates with full synodical certification to teach in the schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Its summer sessions offer undergraduate courses, a program of selected subject-matter majors and minors, advanced study programs, enrichment courses and workshops. Its synodical certification program offers those who have only the required academic background an opportunity to pursue the religion and related courses required to achieve the status of a certified teacher in the Synod. Courses offered in the summer sessions accommodate themselves also to the certification program. It is primarily in the interest of synodical certification, as well, that a fourth program, that of correspondence study, has been inaugurated.

Administrative Organization Dr. Martin Luther College is owned, operated, and maintained by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. This church body has its headquarters at 2929 N. Mayfair Road, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53222. 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 approval of major curriculum revisions; for property acquisitions, building construction, and major maintenance; and for the 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.

Academic Organization 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 purpose of the college. Normally the faculty discharges its responsibilities in these areas through regularly scheduled meetings and assignments to its standing committees.

Commercial air travel is available at Mankato and at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Campus The fifty-acre campus, with a beautiful 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 Hermann Park, and adjacent to it is Harman Park with fine recreational facilities. Directly below the hill on which DMLC is located the city of New Ulm has erected a recreational center. This includes an indoor swimming and diving pool, an arena which has an indoor ice rink, and racquet ball courts. These are available for student use. Picturesque Flandrau State Park, with good hiking, picnic, and camping areas, is situated within easy walking distance of the campus.

Buildings Old Main - The building in which the college carried out its mission in its first twenty-five years, is now one of a complex of eleven buildings. Dedicated in 1884, Old Main now functions as the administration center. All administrative and most faculty offices are found here. Academic Center - Erected in 1928 and remodeled and enlarged in 1968, the Academic Center is the primary classroom building. Its well-appointed auditorium accommodates 900 persons and is the setting for the daily chapel services. This auditorium houses a threemanual Casavant pipe organ and a smaller pipe organ. In addition to classrooms, lecture rooms, science facilities and art area, the Academic Center houses the campus bookstore and health center. Music Hall - One of the older buildings on campus, the Music Hall contains organ and piano practice facilities, as well as a class piano laboratory. Music Center - This specialized structure provides outstanding facilities for a well-balanced music curriculum so necessary to prepare qualified graduates for the teaching ministry. It contains music studios, piano and organ practice rooms, 100-seat choral and instrumental rehearsal rooms which double as classrooms, and faculty offices. The two music buildings house thirty-five pianos, nineteen pipe organs, and sixteen electronic pianos as well as a harpsichord. Luther Memorial Union - Dedicated in 1968 and made possible through the generous response of the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod to the Missio Dei Offering, the L.M.U. is a center of campus activity. This building provides multiple facilities: a gymnasium complex which can also be used as a large auditorium, the kitchen and cafeteria,

and annual staffs.

Library - This two-level, air-conditioned building is the learning resource center. lts upper level houses the circulation desk, reserve book area, author and subject indexes, reference works, a magazine and newspaper lounge, the music library, and the Library of American Civilization (19,000 volumes on microfiche). On the lower level are located the library's main stacks, the children's literature section, and the curriculum library. Also on this level are a well-equipped media center and a microcomputer center. Available for faculty and student use are slides, filmstrips, movies, video tapes, recordings, and art originals and reproductions. The DMLC library is associated with OCLC, Inc., a library services data based organization, located in Columbus, OH. The library holds membership in SMILE (Southcentral Minnesota Interlibrary Exchange). General interlibrary service, covering the United States, is available to the campus family. Presently the library's total collection, including print and non-print items, has more than 111,682 items. To maintain and expand its offerings, a beautiful and spacious addition to the library will be constructed during 1986-87. By consulting Professor Gerald Jacobson (DMLC Librarian), Evelyn Daley (reference librarian), Erma Hamann (cataloger), or other members of the library staff, students learn how the library services can be brought to bear on their areas of interest or study. Professor John Paulsen and his staff offer helpful advice on the use of media and microcomputers.

1. Installment Program Fees (item 3 under costs) are due in full on registration day. Charges for room, board, and tuition may be paid in ten equal monthly installments August through May. The first installment is due at registration along with the fees and subsequent installments by the fifteenth day of each following month. 2. Payment Policies A penalty fee of $5.00 will be assessed on all accounts where the scheduled payments are not met. Financial aid which a student will be receiving may be used to satisfy payment requirements. In extraordinary cases a student may be granted an extension for payment for a reasonable amount of time by the president or his designate. Students will not be allowed to enroll in a new semester if a balance is due on a preceding semester. Prevailing interest rates will accrue on unpaid balances following the completion of a semester. No transfer of credits or final grade reports will be issued until the student's financial obligations have been met or satisfactory arrangements to do so have been made. The college bookstore does not permit charging but does accept Master Card and Visa credit cards. The charge for room and board and for tuition may be revised by the Board of Trustees of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod at any time as changing economic conditions may demand.

Financial Aid Dr. Martin Luther College believes that the primary responsibility for financing a college education lies with the student and his or her family. However, the college does not want anyone who wishes to become a Christian day school teacher to be deprived of the opportunity for lack of financial resources. For this reason the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod bears a large share of the costs (about one-half) to keep them as low as possible. In addition a financial aid program and a special office are available to assist the student. 1. DMLC Administered Sources of Financial Aid Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and employment.


For this DMLC makes use of its own funds and resources and of synodical funds and programs.


college also will assist the student in making use of state and federal programs, such as the Minnesota State Scholarship

and Grant (for Minnesota

National Direct Student Loan, Guaranteed

residents only), Pell Grant, Supplemental Student Loan, Minnesota

Grant (SEOG),

SELF loan program,

PLUS and

ALAS loans, and College Work-Study.

2. Outside Sources of Financial Aid The student may also be eligible for assistance from other state and federal programs, such as Veteran's Benefits, Bureau of Indian Affairs, or Vocational Rehabilitation. Individual congregations, schools, and businesses have scholarships for members, graduates, or children of employees.

3. Application for Financial Aid Each applicant to DMLC will receive a financial aid application and brochure. A more detailed description of the sources of financial aid and the requirements for receiving it may be found in the Financial Aid Brochure. Most forms of aid require basically two items:

Incompletes - The temporary grade I (Incomplete) is issued 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 second-semester Incomplete by the end of summer school, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F.





Academic standings are computed each semester on the basis of

grade points earned to date. Both the semester

grade point average and the cumulative

Policies Regarding Academic Standing - A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester or residence. Normally, if he fails to gain this status, he will be required to withdraw. Application for readmittance will be considered only after a lapse of two semesters. 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 proper academic standards, a student on probation shall also discuss with his adviser the extent of his extraclass 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 dean of students, 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. 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% hours; sophomores: 19'/2 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 in good standing and with 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. 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 an elective keyboard course also requires 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 mid-semester, 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 first report to his adviser for instructions on procedures. When a student does not follow official procedures in voluntarily withdrawing 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. Transcripts - One free transcript is available to each student. A fee of $2.00 is charged for each subsequent transcript. Transcript requests must be made in writing and must be signed by the applicant.


Teacher Education


Entrance into the Program - Because Dr. Martin Luther College offers only a program of education to prepare elementary teachers for the public minister of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, a student must pursue the prescribed teacher education 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. This eligibility will be determined on the basis of recommendations from the faculty screening committee which will consider other factors in addition to academic standing. 3. Students must have attained the status of good standing (ct. page 29) before they can enter the professional semester.

Writing Policy - Because the college considers the ability to express oneself clearly, correctly, and responsibly in writing to be a necessity for college work and a characteristic of the competent, qualified Christian educator, it strives to teach and maintain good writing practices. In keeping with this policy, all students must attain a passing grade in a college composition course. Students are advised that grades on poorly written papers, regardless of the course, may be reduced because of the quality of the writing; in extreme cases, a failing grade may be given for this reason.

Policies Regarding Graduation 1. The final thirty semester hours of credit must be earned in residence at Dr. Martin Luther College. 2. A minimum average of 2.000 for the total number of courses taken during the college years is required. 3. A student must be in good standing in his final semester to be eligible for his degree. 4. The student accepts full responsibility for meeting all requirements for graduation. Degree and Certification - Students who satisfactorily complete the college curriculum are graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. Graduates recommended by the faculty for assignment to the Christian ministry have also met the teacher certification requirements of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.



to the Christian


Graduates of the college are ready for assignment to the Christian ministry upon recommendation of the faculty. The committee on assignment of calls, consisting of the praesidium of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and the presidents of its respective districts, determines the placement of the graduates. The college administration and faculty are represented at the meetings of this assignment committee in an advisory capacity. The committee on assignment of calls pursues the policy of not considering for assignment women graduates who intend to be married prior to the next school term. However, they may later be called by congregations through their respective district presidents. Prior to 1981, all graduates who were eligible and available for assignment did receive calls. Ninety-four percent of such graduates of the years 1981-85 have been assigned and called. Assessment of future needs and enrollment shows that there may again soon be a shortage of eligible and available graduates.

Student Life Spiritual Life of the Student - Student life is to be Christian life, an outward expression of inward, Spirit-worked 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 each school day in the Academic Center auditorium. These devotions are designed to focus the light of the Word on student life and on the students' future vocation, as well as to meet their overall 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 vocation periods. Early departures and late returns at vacation time are not to be requested unless emergencies or very clear cut and acceptable reasons exist. 33

- A maturing Christian who is preparing for the teaching ministry in the 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 policies and procedures are summarized in the student handbook. The dean of students, 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. Inconsistencies in Christian life and principles are reasons for dismissal and are handled by the dean of students and the president.


Housing - Except for those students whose homes are in New Ulm, all housing is under college supervision. Dormitories are closed during Christmas, mid-winter, and Easter vacations. On graduation day, students are expected to be checked out of the dormitories by 5:00 p.m. Married students are responsible for making their own off-campus housing arrangements. Personal Belongings - The college provides a 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 insurance counselor. Linen service is available to all students for $39.50 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. Students 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 business office operates a check cashing 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 dean of students at least two weeks before the vehicle is to be brought to campus. Motor vehicle privileges entail a $20.00 registrationfee and proof of adequate insurance coverage, including coverage for passengers. More specific information regarding the possession and use of motor vehicles is available upon request from the office of the dean of students.

Student Services Orientation - An orientation program is conducted during the first days of each academic 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 dean of students or dean of women, both of whom maintain daily office hours. Students receive grade reports at the end of each semester. In addition, students may receive mid-semester evaluations from their advisers. Since the college is concerned about its students and their performance, preparing as they are for the teaching ministry 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 a registered nurse who has on file the completed health data and physical examination forms required of all entering students. A medical fee to cover authorized medical services is assessed at the time of registration along with other fees. Included in the services is a secondary insurance coverage and some basic medical supplies. Normally, the insurance provides for those involved in any sanctioned on-campus or off-campus activities. The maximum coverage is $1,000.00. For extended coverage the college makes available a voluntary group medical and hospital program offered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield. Dramatics, 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, band, and handbell organizations. From time to time outstanding artists are also engaged for campus performances. In addition to frequent activities by various academic divisions, the college sponsors an annual lyceum series, representing various fields of interest. Mankato State University, Gustavus Adolphus College, colleges in the Twin Cities, the University of Minnesota, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, the Ordway Theater, and visits to the Minnesota Orchestra offer excellent opportunities for cultural growth.

Student Activities Extracurricular activities are an integral part of college life and contribute to the educational process; participation is encouraged. All activities and the organizations sponsoring them are


under the supervision

of the faculty's student service council and the student-oriented


legiate council.

Collegiate Council - The collegiate council, whose membership is student elected, exists to serve the best interests of the college and its campus family. It meets regularly to discharge this responsibility and to plan student activities. Student Union - Sociability and entertainment keynote the student union. The Joust-about (a game room), lounges, offices for student organizations, the Round Table (a snack shop), and a post office are housed in this facility. A student union board sponsors recreational activities in the union and governs its general operations. Student Organizations - Music activities are many and varied. The band program includes the DMLC Symphonic Band, the Wind Ensemble, the Jazz Ensemble, a pep band, and other small instrumental ensembles. Other musical groups include handbell choirs and a recorder club (Pro Musica). Students belong to one of four choirs. The college has excellent facilities for theatrical productions. Plays and musicals are staged by the drama club. A drama group which gears its programs to an elementary school audience, the Children's Theater, is an organization whose objectives are especially relevant for prospective teachers. Representing the school through its publications is the privilege of those working on the D.M.L.C. Messenger, the college paper. Journalistic skills of another kind are developed by working on the Excelsior, the college annual. Student organizations which provide for a wide range of interests have been organized for students with special interests, skills, and abilities. Funds collected by the treasurers of all student organizations are deposited in the business office for safe keeping and proper accounting. Athletics - A comprehensive program of intramural and intercollegiate athletics is offered both men and women. The college holds membership in the National Little College Athletic Association which offers national championship competition for men and women in selected sports. The women compete in intercollegiate volleyball, cross country, basketball, softball, tennis, and track with members of the Midwestern Women's Collegiate Conference. The intramural program involves basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, horseshoes, touch football, track and field, and golf. Men's intercollegiate sports include football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and golf. The college competes in the Upper Midwest Collegiate Conference. In order to compete in any aspect of intercollegiate athletics, a student must be covered by an insurance policy which would adequately cover any medical or hospital bills resulting from injury. Facilities include gymnasiums, six tennis courts, baseball diamond, outdoor basketball court, intramural activities areas, football practice field, a football bowl, and a softball diamond.


Varsity Football 1985

DMLC player, Tim Schubkegel (No. 82), snares a 27·yard touchdown pass from Tom Plath in DMLC's 20·13 victory over Pillsbury, one of many victories in a highly successful season.


Varsity Women's Volleyball 1985

DMLC's Betty Carter (No.6) and Yvonda Beaudin (No. 10) defend the net during DMLC's 3-0 victory over Concordia-St. Paul. Women's sports are also very popular at DMLC. The 1985 volleyball team's very successful season was capped by winning the National Little College Athletic Association Championship in St. Louis, MO!

Athletics At DMLC, there is no high-pressured recruiting of star high school athletes, no well-paid coaches, and no huge athletic budget. However, there are talented, enthusiastic college students; an experienced volunteer coaching staff; good facilities; and enough school spirit to make the Nebraska Cornhuskers jealous. Amy Jo Brandel The Journal 11-8-84 Over 50% of DMLC's students participate in intercollegiate or intramural sports. Sports are both entertaining and educational at DMLC since most graduates will either end up teaching some physical education or doing some coaching at the elementary school level.

The following were coaches for interscholastic teams at DMLC for 1985-86: Football - Jack Gronholz Volleyball - Drew Buck Golf - Fred Wulff and Darvin Raddatz Women's Cross Country - Paul Boehlke Men's Basketball - Drew Buck Women's Track - Jack Gronholz Women's Basketball - Barb Leopold Women's Tennis - Gary Dallmann Men's Tennis - Arlen Koestler Softball - Barb Leopold Baseball - Marvin Meihack


Regular Sessions Basic Curriculum - Dr. Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Lutheran elementary 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 this program provide the student with a broad general education. The final two years add to general education, but they also include 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, 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.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Education Degree Education: 1. 20. 50. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56. 75. 80. 85. 57. 93. 97.

Religion Courses available at the Seminary may be taken for Advanced Study Program credit and transferred from the Seminary.

Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry Dr. Martin Luther College offers the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry for men and women of the Church to enlarge their service to the Lord and better equip themselves to meet the challenges of our changing times. Eligibility - This program is designed for graduates of Dr. Martin Luther College, graduates of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, and others who have completed a baccalaureate program of education and have also earned synodical certification. Course Requirements - A minimum of eighteen semester hours of acceptable academic credit must be earned to complete the advanced study program. So that the student may pursue his interests in a manner which exposes him to as broad an experience as is possible, he will be asked to do his specialized study in three broad areas of course offerings: 1) Studies in the Scripture, 2) Studies in Religious Thought and Life, and 3) Studies in Communicating the Gospel. Since this program focuses on the Christian ministry, a minimum of six semester hours of credit in the area of Studies in the Scripture is required. A minimum of three semester hours of credit should be earned in each of the other two areas of study with freedom of election for the remaining six semester hours of credit. Program Availability - The Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry is run concurrently with the regular summer session of Dr. Martin Luther College. It is offered in two short terms over a space of two and one-half weeks per term. Students may enroll in either or in both terms. Further information about the 1986 program may be found in the summer school bulletin.


The Supervision

of Instruction


The Supervision of Instruction Program offers an opportunity for administrators of WELS Lutheran schools to gain expertise in the supervision of instruction. The primary goal of this program is to provide the participant with a basic understanding of the nature, methodology, dimensions, and problems of supervision so that he may better be able to define and enact the role of Lutheran School supervisor of instruction best suited to his personal characteristics and talents, the needs and expectations of his congregation(s) and community, and the scriptural concept of supervision. Eligibility - This program of advanced study is designed primarily for individuals who are interested in the supervision of instruction. All participants must be synodically certified. Admission and Credits - The program contains 21 hours of credit. Fifteen semester hours of credit must be earned in the specifically designed courses for supervision of instruction in Lutheran schools: Introduction to Supervision (3) Design and Development of Curriculum (3) Improving the Quality of Instruction (3) School Administration and Supervision (3) Problems in Supervision (3) Since this program is a study of supervision of instruction in Lutheran schools, six semester hours of credit in the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry are required. Four courses (1.5 credits each) must be chosen: two from the area of Studies in the Scripture and two from the combined areas of Studies in Religious Thought and Life and Studies in Communicating the Gospel.

Program for Subject Matter Majors and Minors Dr. Martin Luther College, since 1972, has enhanced the value of the B.S. Ed. degree, awarded to graduates, by requiring each student to pursue an "area of concentration" in one of five subject matter areas. Now, particularly with the expansion of the Synod's secondary school system, more of the Synod's teachers, present and future, have felt the need for the additional learning and credits that would provide a complete subject matter major. Since the summer of 1983, the college has offered interested students, graduates, and others the opportunity to earn enough credits to complete a subject matter major in English, Social Studies, or SCience.


for Major - To qualify for the subject matter major in English, a student will have earned a minimum of 36 credits in English.


To qualify for the subject matter major in Social Studies, a student will have earned a minimum of 42 credits in Social Studies. To qualify for the subject matter major in Science, a student will have earned a minimum of 48 credits in Science. Minors in Biology and Physical Science require the student to earn 27 and 29 credits, respectively. Eligibility - Teachers and others who have already graduated may apply for admission to the program through the director of special services. Normally, they will earn credits toward the major by attending summer school. Undergraduates who wish to graduate with a subject matter major will, in consultation with their advisers, begin in their Freshman or Sophomore years to select courses with this goal in mind, and to start earning credits toward it by attending summer school. Formal request to enter the program will be made during the second semester of the Junior year, and will be considered at a meeting of the student, the adviser, and the concerned division chairman. Dr. Martin Luther College undergraduates who wish to earn subject matter majors must also meet all the other requirements for the B.S.Ed. degree for graduation from DMLC. In effect, then, an undergraduate student may earn a double major, one in Elementary Education, and another in English, Social Studies, or Science. Available Courses - Many of the courses which may be taken to earn the subject matter major are already available as electives in the English, Social Studies, or Science areas of concentration. While area of concentration requirements can be met by a selection from these courses, a student earning a subject matter major will have taken most of them. Additional new courses will therefore be added from time to time and offered in summer sessions. For Further Information services.

For information or application, write the director of special

Correspondence Study Program In an effort to serve better the Church and more specifically the members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, Dr. Martin Luther College has established a correspondence study program. This program is intended to provide opportunity for additional study for men and women to become better qualified as teachers in our Christian day schools and high schools or as lay leaders in our congregations.

Description - Correspondence courses aid an individual in achieving an educational goal through home study under professional guidance. The correspondence courses offered by Dr. Martin Luther College are prepared and taught by regular members of the faculty who usually teach the same courses on campus. The content, work requirement, and credit offered for courses in the correspondence program are equivalent to the same courses in the regular program of the college. Normally, a three-credit correspondence course is divided into 24 lessons plus midterm and final examinations. Eligibility - Enrollment in the correspondence course program for credit is open to all who would quality for admission into regular and summer school sessions of Dr. Martin Luther College. Sunday school teachers and laymen are also encouraged to apply even if they are not interested in academic credit. Admission -

Application for correspondence study may be made at any time.

Cost - The fee for a three-credit correspondence course is $120.00. Other costs to the student include textbooks, materials, and mailing expenses. Further Information - Complete information concerning the correspondence study program may be obtained by addressing your request to the director of special services.

Independent Study Projects (ISP) The independent study program offers an opportunity for individuals or small groups (school faculties or persons with common interests) to engage in on-campus, guided study and discussion of topics of interest to them but not included in the current summer session offerings. Eligibility - The independent study program is open to all certified teachers. A maximum of three credits earned in appropriate independent study projects may be applied toward the Advanced Study Program in the Christian Ministry. Admission and Credits - Arrangements for independent study projects with one or more faculty members to serve as advisers should be made through the director of special services by May 15. This will provide time for student(s) and adviser(s) to agree upon a topic, goals, credits to be earned, and standards of evaluation for the independent study project. From one to three credits may be earned over a period of from one to five weeks. The cost is $70.00 per credit.

Workshops in Effective Instruction DMLC offers interested faculties or groups of teachers an off-campus program of workshops in effective instruction. The main purpose of these workshops is to acquaint teachers with what research, theory, and practice suggest are effective procedures, techniques, methods, and materials for particular content areas. Schools may wish to incorporate these workshops into their faculty in-service programs. For further information, contact the director of special services.

Faculty Focus

Charles H. Luedtke, professor of music, planned a grand celebration of J.S. Bach's 300th birthday this past year. He designed a 250-pound, 14-layer cake covered with 50 pounds of frosting. The cake was full of numerological significance, a feature Bach would have enjoyed. A lecture on Bach, a guest artist to perform 30 Goldberg Variations from memory, and a WOO-piececake so big it barely fit through the auditorium doors marked the occasion in a way students will never forget.

"There's been no end of interest in Bach."

Dr. John McKay, guest artist, and Ken Kahle, baker 68

"Although the college trains young persons to be effective teachers, our work is really directed toward those children who will one day be taught by these teachers."
