A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
President John C. Lawrenz "Go and make disciples of all nations,... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded ... " (Matthew 28, 19-20). The words of Jesus before his ascension entrusted the passing on of saving truth to teachers. Grace is at the center of that truth. Paul started there when he commissioned Timothy to pass the saving truth on from generation to generation: "... be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others ... " (2 Timothy 2:1-2). Jesus' command and Paul's encouragement are the platform upon which I base my calling as president of Dr. Martin Luther College. Being and remaining strong in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is the college's initial mission. Around this gospel core is wrapped the commitmentto teach young men and women "all things" commanded by the Savior.The educationalimperativein our classrooms is to "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. . . demolishing arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God" (2 Corinthians 10:5). It is DMLC's complementary mission to send out reliable men and women, equipped to make disciples of all nations. As the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod faces the twenty-first century, this is a daunting task. Into the American melting pot we see cultures flowing from every corner of the globe. Our fine Lutheran educational system begs for teachers to prepare the next generation to share the gospel across cultures. The world outside America offers new mission opportunities daily. Educational doors are swinging open in many of these world mission fields. At home and abroad Paul, the great missionary, inspires us: "I have become all things to all men so that by all possIble means I might save some" (1 Corinthians 9:22).

WHAT A PRIVILEGE! "Many graduates of Dr. Martin Luther College become public ministers of the gospel. What a privilege God gives theml Like Jesus who 'came not to be served but to serve' and 'who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross' they gladly give of themselves for the benefit of others. They can share with others the wonderful message of forgiveness and life in Jesus Christ. All believers are so privileged, but public ministers of the gospel have the added joy of being able to do this as a fulltime profession. What a privilegel And what a privilege God also gives those of us who serve by helping to prepare public ministers of the gospe!!"

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 almost one hundred 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 (WELS) 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. A secondary teacher education program (STEP)at Dr. Martin Luther College was authorized by the WELS in convention in 1987. As a result the five-year elementary/secondary program was inaugurated by the college in the fall of 1988. The first class to complete this program graduated in the spring of 1993.
The existence and function of Dr. Martin Luther College rest on unalterable convictions drawn from the God-given Scriptures. We regard human beings as the crown of God's creation. As such, they were made to know God and to share his company. They were endowed with gifts that permitted them to become acquainted with, enjoy the use of, and find cause for wonder and gratitude in all that God fashioned for their service and delight. We also hold to the reality of sin, a persistent hereditary wickedness in human beings which compels them to oppose the gracious Creator. In sin we find the underlying cause for all evil; it ruptured the Creator's design for the human race, frustrated creation's service to all people and fixed on them a guilt and helplessness from which God alone could set them free. This he did through his Son, the God-Man Jesus Christ, who entered history and restored the Creator's eternal design for his people. In the person and work of Jesus Christ we find the basis for our Christian assurance that the sinful human being was 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 the potential of body and soul to the glory of God; to the human family - an obligation to proclaim the freedom-bringing truth in Christ and to do good in whatever other manner we have opportunity; to the environment - the recognition that all created things are gifts of God to be investigated, respected, and 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 people and their 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 people hope 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 people and their culture we may see in broad context the persistent weaknesses and failings of human beings, and their continuing need for the Savior;
second, that despite the crippling
effects of sin we may appreciate the talents given
to us for doing, thinking, and speaking what is beautiful, praiseworthy, mentally and emotionally

Function Consistent with its philosophy and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College in its regular sessions offers a four-year curriculum in elementary teacher education, and a five-year curriculum in secondary education and church musicianship, both culminating in a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education and enabling graduates with synodical certification to teach in the schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. A five-year curriculum in staff ministry, also offering a baccalaureate degree, is currently being implemented. 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 the necessary academic background an opportunity to pursue the religion and related courses required to achieve the status of a certified teacher or staff minister 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, exists.
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

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 Although most campus buildings were built prior to the RehabilitationAct of 1973, attempts are made to assist students and other personnel who have disabilities. There are groundlevel entrances to the Academic Center, the library building, and the gymnasium. The library is also served by an elevator. Every attempt is made to eliminate any disadvantages and create a sensitive learning environment for all students with disabilities. 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.

DMLC Children's Theatre has entertained thousands of children for over twenty-five years. The scene pictured above is from the 1993 production.
The Children's Literature Endowment Fund amounts to $51,121. The earnings of this endowment provide funds for children's literature materials and thus permit the librarian to purchase more items for the main library. The endowment fund was established through gifts received from alumni, friends, WELS congregations, and WELS schools as a centennial thank offering in the year 1984.
Campus Housing Several large dormitories provide on-campus housing for students. Centennial
Hall - An attractive two-story residence hall which accommodates 127 men.
Highland Hall - Sharing a common lobby with Hillview Hall, this four-story women's residence hall accommodates 228 students. Hillview Hall - A four-story residence hall which accommodates 218 students.
Admissions Polley - Because of its singular function and purpose, Dr. Martin Luther College must consider carefully the vocational goals of all applicants. Therefore primary consideration is given to qualified applicants who Intend to prepare for the teaching or staff ministry in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The college is also dedicated to receiving qualified applicants who intend to prepare for the teaching ministry in church bodies or congregations which publicly share the doctrinal position of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Classification - Because they are enrolled in courses preparatory to full-time service in the church, all students are classified as divinity students. As a result, on completion of the prescribed curriculum, all qualified graduates are presented to the Church as candidates for assignment through a divine call. Nondiscriminatory Polley - In view of the fact that the sole purpose of this college is to educate students for the teaching and the staff ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, this institution does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, age, sex or marital status in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs. Hence this institution serves all without exception who meet the Biblical and synodical standards for service in the Church. DMLC adheres to the requirements of Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the ADA policy 1990. Agreement - Because the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod underwrites a substantial portion of the educational costs, the Board of Control requires all full-time students to state that
1) they agree to the objectives
and policies set forth in the college catalog;
2) they agree to pursue the college's prepare students for the teaching gelical Lutheran Synod; and 3) they will as graduates,

6. Variable costs The cost of books, supplies, travel, laundry, personal, and miscellaneous expenses vary according to the individual. For 1994-1995 the estimate per individual per semester is $950. The college bookstore accepts charges on MasterCharge and VISA credit cards.
Incidental charges Parking tickets, fines for dormitory infractions or past-due library books, and charges for the damage of school property are due immediately. Any payment past due on the first of the month warrants suspension from school.
Making Payments Students pay the costs of attending school through a combination of scholarships, grants, credits for having attended a synodical preparatory school, school-arranged loans, private funds, privately-arranged loans, work-study programs, and jobs. It is the student's responsibility to meet his or her obligation to the school by developing a plan prior to each semester. Counselors, the DMLC Business Office, and the DMLC Financial Aid Office will offer help to students who seek assistance. It is the school's policy to send monthly financial statements to students. For a fee of $20 per year a student may elect at registration to have a duplicate copy of the monthly financial statement sent to parents or guardians. The school observes federal laws regarding confidentiality by sending statements to students or persons designated by them.
Basic Payment Policy The Board of Trustees and the Board for Ministerial Education of the WELS have established the policy that charges be paid in advance and in full. Annual fees and one-time fees are due at registration. Special course fees are due prior to the beginning of the course. Board, room, and tuition may be paid in monthly installments or by the semester.
Semester Pre-Payment Plan There is a 2% discount on board, room, and tuition if paid in advance for the entire semester. The discount is 3% If paid in advance for the entire year. Discounts are applied only on the portion paid in cash or by personal check, not on any portion that is covered by scholarships, grants, credits, or school-arranged loans.
Monthly Pre-Payment Plan Board, room, and tuition may be paid in equal monthly installments, one due on registration and one on the fifteenth day of each month from September through May. When payments are made monthly, such things as scholarships, grants, credits, or school-arranged loans are distributed in equal monthly segments over both semesters. Scholarships, grants, credits, or school-arranged loans may not be "front-loaded" to cover books, one-time fees, annual fees, or special course fees.
Reducing Monthly Installments Installments are reduced at registration or prior to the beginning of the second semester (a) when a scholarship or grant originates with DMLC or another WELS ministerial education school, or (b) when a student presents written confirmation from a school, congregation, organization or other agency that DMLC will receive a scholarship, grant, credit, or other payment within the coming semester, or (c) when a student has applied for a school-arranged loan that has the approval of the DMLC Financial Aid Office.
Students may arrange emergency
loans while school is in session to meet unexpected
expenses. These loans will not change the monthly payment arranged at the beginning of the semester. Whenever emergency
loans require the co-signing
of the student and
the school, an amount equal to one monthly installment will be immediately the student's
account. The balance of the emergency
loan will be turned over to the
student in cash to cover the emergency. The DMLC Business Office will not arrange private loans to students. Nor may students draw money from any school-arranged installments. Delinquent

Financial Aid Dr. Martin Luther College believes that the primary responsibility for financing a college education lies with the student and his or her parents. However, the college does not want anyone who wishes to become a Lutheran elementary teacher, secondary teacher, or staff minister 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 onehalf) to keep them as low as possible. In addition a financial aid program and a financial aid 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. The college also will assist the student In making use of state and federal programs, such as the Minnesota State
Scholarship and Grant (for Minnesota residents only), Pell Grant, Supplemental Grant (SEOG), Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan, Minnesota SELF loan program, PLUS and SLS loans, and Work-Study. Travel assistance Is available for those who live more than 750 miles from New Ulm. Most forms of financial aid are based on need. See application notes below.
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. Application for financial aid may be made any time during the school year; however, DMLC funds are limited and there is a priority date of May 15, 1994.
Most forms of financial aid require basically two items: a. A completed DMLC Financial Aid Application. b. A completed financial need analysis. The basic need analysis form is the FREE APPLICATIONFOR FEDERALSTUDENTAID (FAFSA).DMLC applicants will be personally informed about any required supplementary forms. For further information write to the Financial Aid Office at the college. Financial aid applications and need analysiSforms should be available after January 1 preceding the academic year. 4.

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 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 grade paint 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. Grade Point Average - A grade-point system is used as a convenient method of determining whether a student has done work of C average, 2.000. The grade-paint average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours taken. A minimum final semester and cumulative grade-point average of 2.000 is required for graduation. MINIMUM SEMESTERAND CUMULATIVEGRADE POINT AVERAGE FOR GOOD STANDING

Policies Regarding Academic Standing - A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of 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 advisor 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 advisor 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 advisor the extent of his extraclass activities and outside employment.

twelve hours for credit (3/4 time = 9 credits; 1/2 time = 6 credits). The normal academic
load per semester for both the elementary and the secondary teacher education programs or the staff ministry program (excluding credit for elective choir, band, and keyboard) is as follows: Freshmen 15-19 credits Sophomores 16-20 credits Juniors 16-20 credits Seniors 16-20 credits Fifth Year 16-20 credits A student enrolled in any program may be permitted to carry one additional course if (1) he has a cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or better, and (2) the number of credits taken by the student in any given semester (excluding elective choir, band, and keyboard) does not exceed 22. Permission to assume such an overload is obtained by the student from his advisor and the registrar. For the Minnesota Scholarship and Grant Program (Minnesota residents only) the requirement for a full-time grant is 15 credits. Grant amounts are pro-rated if a student carries less than 15 credits per semester. A student may register to audit a course if in good standing and with the consent of his advisor, 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 first two weeks of the semester. 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 - Within the first two weeks of the semester and with the approval of the advisor and the registrar, a student may drop and/or add a course, or change the registration from credit to audit.

details, the high school student should write to the
Withdrawal from Courses - A student may withdraw from a course with the approval of his advisor, 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 advisor 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 Program Students who enroll at Dr. Martin Luther College for teacher education have two options:
1. to enter the four-year WELS elementary teacher education program, or, 2. to enter the five-year dual program qualifying graduates to serve as teachers in WELS elementary andWELS secondary schools (high schools and academies). Entrance into the Program - Students opting for either the four- or five-year teacher education program enter that program upon their enrollment and must pursue the prescribed curriculum.
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 teachinq, and the other half is devoted to professional education course work.

Early Field Experience (EFE) In order to become familiar with the responsibilities of the teaching ministry before they enter student teaching, all students must meet the requirements of a two-phase early field experience. EFE is a non-credit requirement of the Dr. Martin Luther College curriculum in professional education. Students must complete this program prior to their elementary student teaching. Transfer students will receive guidelines for their EFE requirements upon admission to Dr. Martin Luther College. PHASE ONE: ONE-WEEK EXPERIENCE All freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will participate in an early field experience during one week midway through the second semester. The actual week for the experience is indicated on the college calendar. Freshmen receive their experience on campus through a variety of activities. Sophomores and juniors are responsible for making arrangements to receive their experience in a Lutheran school classroom. Sophomores enrolled in the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) may arrange to gain their experience in a WELS high school. All other sophomores and all juniors must receive their experience in a Lutheran elementary school. PHASE TWO: INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE All students are required to record a minimum of thirty hours of experience in activities related to the work of the teaching ministry. Ten hours must be completed each year of the freshman, sophomore, and junior years. Students are to gain some experience in four areas: college activities related to children, congregational activities, classroom activities, and nonclassroom activities with children. Students must complete and register the first twenty hours of individual EFE before they will be permitted to register for student teaching.

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. In addition to the freshman composition class and written assignments across the curriculum, the college requires a further evaluation of writing: a special essay written by each student in the junior year. This essay will be judged by a faculty jury on a pass/fail basis. Students will have to achieve a passing grade on this essay before being granted entrance into the professional semester. Students who fail will have the opportunity to rewrite the essay. Their rewriting will be contingent upon some further preparation on their part under the direction of the Developmental Education Center.

7. The student accepts full responsibility for meeting all requirements for graduation. Degree and Certification - Students who satisfactorily complete the college teaching 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. Though Dr. Martin Luther College is accredited as a baccalaureate degree granting institution by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, this degree does not qualify its graduates for state teaching certification without some additional course work. Graduation Rate - The following statement on graduation rate is in compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and the Campus Security Act as amended by Public Law 102-26. Under the provisions of this law, a graduation rate of 64% has been achieved at the end of six years for the first-time freshmen who entered Dr. Martin Luther College in the fall of 1986.
Assignment to the Christian Ministry Graduates of the college are ready for assignment to the Christian ministry upon recommendation of the faculty. The committee on aSSignmentof calls, conSistingof 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 aSSignmentcommittee in an advisory capacity. In 1991 and again in 1992 all graduates who were eligible and available for aSSignment received calls into the teaching ministry. In 1993, that figure was ninety-two percent.
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 vacation periods. Early departures and late returns at vacation time do not demonstrate good stewardship in attending classes. Conduct - A maturing Christian who Is preparing for the teaching ministry 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 each 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. The dormitories open to all students beginning at 3 p.m. on the Thursday before the opening of school. Dormitories are closed during Christmas, early spring, 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, and bedspread. The student also provides a desk lamp, unless assigned to Hillview Hall. The college cannot and does not carry insurance on the student's personal possessions. If there is concern about such coverage, the student is advised to check with the family's insurance counselor. Linen service is available to all students for $62.50 for the school year, payable in full at time of registration. Each student receiving linen service is 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 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 registration fee 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. A special drug and alcohol abuse orientation program is conducted through the office of the dean of students. All incoming freshmen and all transfer students are involved in these programs. Counseling - Each student is assigned a faculty member as an advisor. The advisor 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 advisor 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 advisors. At registration, students may sign a request that their parents also receive copies of the semester grade reports and any correspondence pertaining to academic standing. Since the college is concerned about its students and their performance, preparing as they are for the teaching ministry and the staff 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. Dramatics, Concerts, and Lectures - The academic community of the college presents cultural and educational events throughout the year.
musical events are scheduled:
by advanced organizations.
recitals by staff members,
students in organ and piano and concerts by the choral, band and handbell From time to time outstanding
artists are also engaged for campus perform-
ances. In addition
activities by various academic

various fields of interest.
Visits to Mankato State University,
the college sponsors
St.Paul, the University of Minnesota, the Walker Art Center, the Tyrone Guthrie Theater, the Ordway Theater, and excursions to hear the Minnesota Orchestra and the St. Paul Chamber 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 collegiate 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 operation. Student Organizations - Music activities are many and varied. The band program includes the DMLC 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 three 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 Exce/sior, the college annual. Student organizations Which provide for a wide range of interests are 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 Small College Athletic
Association which offers national championship

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Education Degree Basic Curriculum - The teacher education program of Dr. Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Lutheran elementary and secondary schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, the college offers a 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 or three years add to general education, but they also include specialization in the field of education and a concentration or major in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select are English, mathematics, music, science, and social studies; students in the elementary and secondary program select a major from English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, and social studies. Included within the teacher education curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, graduates may serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

SECONDARY TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM (STEP)
at Dr. Martin Luther College
Students who enter the five-year elementary-secondary teacher education program can choose from six majors: English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, and social studies. Each major has been carefully crafted by the DMLC faculty to meet the teaching needs of schools in the WELS. Professional education courses support each major. These courses include studies in adolescent psychology, reading methods, student teaching, and content teaching methods for specific majors. Representatives of the high schools have strongly expressed the importance of having secondary teachers educated under the influence of Christian principles of education and showing dedication and commitment based on a Gospel-enlightened understanding of church and ministry. Therefore, religion courses are the backbone of the curriculum at DMLC and every subject is studied in a Christian atmosphere. A major in church musicianship is also included in the program. The five-year program, therefore, will prepare students as: o HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS o ELEMENTARYSCHOOL TEACHERS o CHURCH MUSICIANS

Plano and Organ - In the general education program, all students are required to earn two semester hours of credit in keyboard. Keyboard work begins in the first semester the student is on campus and continues in consecutive semesters until requirements are met. The music faculty evaluates the student's previous experience to determine the level at which instruction begins. Students with little or no previous keyboard experience, who may not be able to meet the minimum requirements as set forth in 4031 and 4032, are permitted a maximum of two additional semesters to complete the work. The minimum requirements are designed to indicate sufficient facility to teach classroom music and conduct devotions. A semester of work not meeting the minimum course requirements receives the grade of S if progress is satisfactory or U if progress is unsatisfactory. When piano and organ instruction 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 piano and organ is given in a group format with three laboratory class meetings per week. Special considerations may allow a student to take double lessons in organ and piano courses. Permission for this privilege is granted by the instructor, advisor, and registrar under the guidelines for "credit hour load" on page 31 of this catalog. Additional fees are required. Students who have met the keyboard requirements of their degree program may elect additional piano or organ courses for credit or no credit (audit). No minimum cumulative grade point average is required for this election. Registration for keyboard instruction without credit (audit) is open to students only after they have met the keyboard requirements of their degree program. Keyboard instruction without credit is entered as "Audit" on the student's official record. Instruction is given at the level of the student's ability. Plano 4030 or 4031, and 4032 or 4037.

Student Teaching In the Secondary School
Subject Matter Majors and Minors Program Dr. Martin Luther College, since 1972, has enhanced the value of the Bachelor of Science in Education degree, awarded to graduates, by requiring each student to pursue an "area of concentration" in one of five subject matter areas. 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. Minors in biology and physical science are also available.
Requirements 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 earn credits toward the major or minor by attending summer sessions. Undergraduates who wish to graduate with a subject matter major or minor will, in consultation with their advisors, 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 advisor, and the appropriate division chairman. Undergraduates should also consider the STEP described elsewhere in this catalog. 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. 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 English, social studies, or science. Additional new courses are from time to time offered in summer sessions.

Inservice Program for Lutheran Teachers Dr. Martin Luther College is offering to interested faculties or groups of teachers two offcampus programs, Workshops in Effective Instruction and Courses for Enhancing Instruction.

Schools may wish to incorporate the workshops or courses into their faculty inservice programs. For further information, contact the Director of Special Services. See page 88.
Staff Ministry Program In addition to elementary and secondary teacher education the board of control and faculty of Dr. Martin Luther College are pleased to announce the beginning of the Staff Ministry Program. The delegates of the 1991 WELS Convention authorized the college to begin this new program, which will lead to a baccalaureate degree. The growth of our congregations, the geographical dispersion of the members in mission and urban areas, the changing social circumstances of families and neighborhoods, the shortage of pastors, the new potential for second career ministry, and the goals of the WELS Mission-Vision 2000 + Statement are important factors for the beginning of this program to assist in the ministry of the church. A five-year course of study, semester by semester, has been proposed by the college for this program. The length of the program for older students will vary, depending on previous study and experience. Anyone interested and desiring further information may contact Professor Lawrence O. Olson, Director of the Staff Ministry Program.
