Message From the President Pastor Theodore B. Olsen

Come, 0 sinners, one and all, Come, accept his invitation. Come, obey his gracious call; Come and take his free salvation! Firmly in these words believe - Jesus sinners does receive. CW304:4 Paul says it this way: "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Yet he follows with some penetrating questions as to how believers can witness to someone they have not heard about. Then Paul asks, " And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" That is what Martin Luther College is all about. Through a rigorous and demanding curriculum it prepares one to become a herald of the Gospel as a pastor, a staff minister, an elementary teacher, an early childhood education teacher, or a secondary teacher. There are over 1000 students at Martin Luther College getting ready to issue the invitation, "Come, 0 sinners, one and all ... Come and take his free salvation." Those preparing for educational ministry will take their places in God's vineyard upon graduation from Martin Luther College, and those preparing for pastoral ministry will continue their education at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary upon graduation. A quality college education, preparation for public ministry, the fellowship of God's children, a faith-filled and dedicated faculty, fine facilities - what blessings we experience at Martin Luther College. Would you care to join us in all these blessings and then have the joy and privilege to serve the Lord and his people as a servant of the Gospel? Contact our admissions department - you will be glad you did.

Vacations

A Christian Community

Dormitories and the cafeteria open the weekend before the first class in fall and close on graduation day in spring. Facilities are closed during the longer Christmas and spring breaks and the shorter Thanksgiving and Easter recesses. Students are encouraged to travel home during these two holiday recesses. Those who live farther from home are encouraged to spend the break at the home of a friend.

God created us to live together with him and with each other. In this world where sin separates and divides, we thank God for gathering us together as his people in Christ. God enables us to live together with each other in a Christian community and enjoy the blessings of worshiping, working, laughing, and even crying together. It is God who makes it possible for us as a campus family to encourage and admonish, forgive and befriend, help and assist.

Students and parents are often concerned about winter travel back to Martin Luther College after major vacation breaks. When winter weather causes travel concerns, students and parents are asked to check the MLC Internet website [www.mlc-wels.edu] for information concerning school closing, or phone the college information desk at 507-354-8221.

Common to all Christian students is the struggle between the new man of faith and the old sinful nature. The new man wants to love God and people perfectly. The old Adam hates what is good and is completely selfish. God's Law uncovers and exposes sinful selfishness, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ covers, heals, and comforts with the message of forgiveness won by Christ.

Housing

Moreover, God's graciousforgiveness provides the powerfor godly living, striving, and maturing. When more than

In general, college policy is that students live in the dormitories provided by our synod. Unmarried students live with a roommate in one of five residence halls operated by the college. Single students who are four or more years out of high school may request an exemption from dormitory living, but the Vice-President for Student Life will make decisions regarding such requests. Married students arrange their own housing.

1,000 people share close quarters on our campus, opportunity abounds for selfishness to hurt and wound. But God the Holy Spirit uses his Word on our campus to tum us away from sin, tum us back to Christ in repentance and faith, and tum our hearts and hands toward others in love.

Worship

The college provides a bed, mattress, desk, chair, dresser, and wardrobe for each dormitory resident. Rooms are equipped with connections for phone, cable TV and the campus computer network. Students provide towels, bed linens and blankets, phone, and study lamps. Appliances and extra furniture may be brought into the dormitories with the approval of the dormitory supervisor. Some items require a fee or deposit. Before bringing items to campus, please contact the Vice-President for Student Life.

Martin Luther College plans its day around the worship of our Lord. Morning and evening chapel services provide our campus family with opportunity to gather together around the Word, to sing, to pray, and to praise God. Students are also encouraged and expected to attend worship services at one of the area WELS congregations.

Class Attendance Martin Luther College expects students to attend their classes. The public ministry calls for faithfulness, and regular class attendance is one training ground for that important requirement. Illness and emergency, of course, may necessitate absence from class.

Meals Dormitory residents are served meals in the cafeteria on the lower level of the Luther Student Center. Off-campus students may purchase meals in the cafeteria.

The academic calendar specifies when classes are in session. Students and their parents and families are expected to respect the academic calendar, particularly when making travel arrangements and vacation plans. Travel arrangements should be made after the last exam date of the semester.

Financial Services Martin Luther College operates an automatic teller machine on campus. The ATM permits withdrawals, but no deposits. The school's receptionist cashes personal checks (up to $20 per day). Local banks cash personal checks for students who present proper identification.

'-' Health

Student Government

Services

Each class selects its own officers and elects delegates to the Student Senate. Each of the five residence halls has a dormitory council elected by its own residents. The Student Senate is the student body's voice in matters affecting student life at MLC. Class officers attend to the specific concerns of each class. Dormitory councils address concerns of residential living.

New students submit a physician's health evaluation and a profile of medical history on forms provided them by the college. Proof of immunization (Diphtherial Tetanus within the past 10 years, MMR, and Polio) is a legal requirement for campus residency. It is Martin Luther College policy that necessary medical and immunization forms be returned to the Admissions Office prior to a student's arrival on campus.

Marriage Students notify the Vice-President for Student Life when they are making plans for a marriage that will take place before graduation from Martin Luther College or prior to enrollment at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, or that may impact future assignment. The Campus Pastor then counsels with these students.

An on-staff registered nurse meets the routine health needs of student. She holds regular hours on-campus each school day. New Ulm has a regional hospital and competent physicians in most fields. A student is responsible for the costs of off-campus care, which means carrying major medical insurance or being prepared to meet emergency medical costs should they occur. Martin Luther College carries accidental injury insurance to supplement a student's own primary coverage. Intercollegiate athletes at Martin Luther College fall under the protection of NCAA coverage for catastrophic injury. Intercollegiate athletes must carry their own major medical insurance and must update their health records with a physical exam prior to their junior year.

Academic Counseling Each student is assigned a faculty member as an academic advisor. The advisor helps chart the path to graduation by tracking academic progress and assisting the student to choose appropriate courses. The advisor may also offer personal counseling or direct the student to someone who can also help with non-academic concerns.

Personal and Spiritual Counseling

Campus Living

Students who serve as resident assistants provide peer counseling. There is one resident assistant on each floor or wing of a dormitory. Each dormitory has an adult resident supervisor to whom a student may also turn. The Vice-President for Student Life is available for other concerns. The Martin Luther College Campus Pastor offers confidential spiritual counseling. A regional office of the Wisconsin Lutheran Child and Family Service supplements the work of the Vice-President for Student Life and the Campus Pastor at their recommendation and referral.

Martin Luther College publishes a handbook that contains campus regulations and guidelines. Christian principles and courtesy form the necessary framework for day-to-day living on campus. By enrolling, each student declares his willingness to abide by both the letter and the spirit of these common-sense regulations. The college administration and elected student representatives work together to keep guidelines up-to-date and relevant. Fines are levied and other penalties imposed when regulations are broken. In all cases the goal is to promote peace, harmony, and loving concern for others. The Holy Spirit works through the Word to make each believer more like Christ. When growth in Christian life is not apparent or when behavior calls into question a person's fitness or readiness for public ministry, a student may be asked to leave school.

Motor Vehicles A student may bring a motor vehicle to campus under the following conditions: • the vehicle must carry liability insurance; • it needs to be safe; • it must be kept in operating condition throughout the year; • it must be registered with the Student Life office; • it must be parked on campus at a fee ranging from $40 to $80 per year.

Campus regulations reflect the concerns of our civil government. The Martin Luther College Governing Board has declared our campus to be drug- and alcohol-free. Martin Luther College has also established procedures to deal with sexual harassment. Racial prejudice is a form of lovelessness that the college family works with God's Word to eliminate.

Parking on streets adjacent to campus is prohibited as a courtesy to our residential neighbors. Students who bring a vehicle agree to abide by motor vehicle regulations set by the college and the government.

Social Events: Students participate in homecoming activities, snow carnival events, class events and outings, lyceums and cultural events, and specialized clubs.

Orientation And Registration Current students register for classes prior to the end of each school year.

The college welcomes new students and their parents to a few days of orientation at the beginning of the first semester. Matters such as room and roommate assignment, car registration, parking, financial aid, and the initial payment of fees are handled by mail prior to arrival on campus. It is important that students supply the college with a correct summer address.

School Spirit: Students have opportunity to participate in pep fests, cheerleading, and the campus dance team. Service Clubs: Students can assist with campus life by joining audio-visual services, becoming recruitment hosts, and serving as campus ambassadors.

Athletics Martin Luther College offers a comprehensive intercollegiate athletic program for men and women. The college is associated with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA Division III), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA Division II), and the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference. Cross country, soccer, basketball, tennis, and track and field are offered to both men and women. In addition, women may compete in volleyball, softball, and golf, while men can compete in football, golf, and baseball.

Off-Campus Employment The community of New UIm offers part-time jobs to as many students as need them. Employment opportunities are posted regularly in the Luther Student Center in cooperation with Minnesota Job Service. Job opportunities are also listed on the Martin Luther College Campus Intranet. Students may shop for personal needs in New Ulm, nearby Mankato, or the Twin Cities. All three areas sponsor cultural and recreational activities.

Intramural competition is offered for both men and women in tennis, indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, bowling, badminton, 3-on-3 basketball, softball, and flag football. All students not participating in intercollegiate sports during the respective sport season are eligible to be a part of the intramural program. The program is operated through a student board under the guidance of the Athletic Director.

Handicapped Accessibility Although most campus buildings were built prior to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disabilities Act of 1990, attempts are made to assist students and other personnel who have disabilities. There are ground-level entrances to the Wittenberg Collegiate Center (WCC), the Library building, and the Gymnasium. The Library, Wittenberg Collegiate Center (WCC), Old Main, Luther Student Center (LSC), Augustana and Summit dormitories are served by elevators. Every attempt is made to eliminate any disadvantages and create a sensitive learning environment for all students with disabilities.

Extra-Curricular

The athletic program is under control of the faculty athletic committee with recommendations provided by a student athletic board. The Athletic Director supervises the activities and schedules all intercollegiate athletics and intramural events. The Athletic Director also supervises the dance team and cheerleading squads.

Life

Athletics at Martin Luther College help to contribute to a positive overall college experience for students. Christian sportsmanship is just as important as participation and winning is never placed at odds with learning. Gender equity in sports is observed.

Government: Students can participate in campus leadership opportunities such as Student Senate, dormitory councils, class offices, and an intramural athletic board. Music and Dramatics: student-led drama club, Forum, produces a fall musical, a winter play, reader's theater, outdoor classical theater in the park, and a children's theater play. The MLC Music Division sponsors multiple performance choirs, bands, ensembles, jazz band, and handbells. 9

Entrance Preferences Studies in Pastoral Ministry

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS In keeping with its mission to prepare men and women for service in the churches and schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, Martin Luther College admits into its programs students who • are prayerfully considering the public ministry of the gospel as their life's work; • desire to serve in the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod; • have God-given talents that are valuable for service in the church; • possess an upright character and honorable reputation; and • have demonstrated the ability to succeed in college-level coursework.

This preference can be met in the following ways: 2 credits in Latin* or 2 credits in German* or 2 credits in Spanish or 2 credits in another foreign language (Martin Luther College offers Latin, German, and Spanish courses. Should a student desire to pursue another spoken language, he may do so, at his own expense, in a program approved by Martin Luther College.) "Latin and German may offer advantages to a

theological student. MLC assumes that many students will enter with more than two credits in a foreign language. Students may receive college credit for additional high school semesters if: (a) they achieve an acceptable score on an entrance examination, and (b) they continue with that language on the college level. There are advantages to the study of Latin as the first foreign language in high school. Latin serves as a good introduction to the study of other foreign languages. If a student desires to take the Confessional Languages option, he will find it advantageous to take both Latin and German in high school. Students who lack these preferred high school credits carry college courses which compensate for these deficiencies. Most students can complete a degree program in four years even if they are lacking some of the preferred high school credits.

Students with an ACT mathematics score of 17 or lower are required to complete MTH 0002 Developmental Mathematics before enrolling in any other mathematics course(s). Developmental Mathematics does not fulfill any of the mathematics requirements for graduation. 11

Y Sources and Types of Financial Aid

A decision to enroll at Martin Luther College involves not only a willingness to serve one's Lord in an area of Christian ministry but also a commitment of time and money. To help students reach that goal of Christian ministry, Martin Luther College maintains a comprehensive financial aid program consisting of grants, loans, scholarships, and work study.

Martin Luther College uses its own funds and also makes use of government programs to supply monetary grants to students. Student and parent loans, as well as employment, are also available.

Grant and Scholarship Sources •

A Family Responsibility

• • •

A basic assumption in financial aid is that paying for a college education is primarily the responsibility of the student and his or her family. However, because student and family resources are not equal, MLC's financial aid program exists to help students.

• •

Synod Subsidy

Martin Luther College trust fund income and reserves Synod special and budgetary funds for financial aid Federal Pell Grant Federal Supplementary Educational Opportunity Grant Minnesota State Grant Program Fraternal insurance associations

Loan Sources

To keep costs to students as low as possible, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod provides a generous subsidy to operating costs. That means total costs to students are much less than at other private colleges and are comparable to state-supported institutions. Though it is not listed on a statement or on a financial aid award letter, each student in effect receives financial aid of approximately $3000.

• • • • •

Federal Perkins Loan Federal Stafford Loan Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) Minnesota Supplementary Educational Loan Fund (SELF) Martin Luther College special loan funds

Special Work Programs Based On Need

In addition to regular on-campus and off-campus jobs • Federal Work Study

Most financial aid may be described as need-based, meaning that a student's family financial resources are considered. This requires a need analysis (see under Application Deadlines on the following pages). Allowances are made for family size, for other family members in college, and for special expenses and circumstances. The need analysis may not be a perfect measure of a family's ability to meet costs, but it does serve to compare student and family resources and helps to distribute financial aid equitably.

Need as it relates to financial aid does not necessarily mean needy. Many students qualify for some form of need-based aid. It is important to apply for financial aid. In the 2002-2003 academic year, 90% of the students at Martin Luther College received some form of financial aid.

Grade Point Average and Eligibility

7. The academic standing of transfer students is determined by applying Martin Luther College's standards (see #1 above) to the grade point averages on the applicant's transcript. For example, a transfer student who has been enrolled in a full-time academic program for four or more semesters needs a grade point average, semester and cumulative, of 2.00 or better to enter Martin Luther College in good standing. A student who enters on academic probation is ineligible at Martin Luther College until the student's grade point averages meet the level of good standing.

1. The following are the minimum semester and cumulative grade point averages necessary to be a student in good standing. Sem. 1-1.70 Sem.1I -1.80 Sem. III -1.90 Sem. IVff - 200 2. A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of attendance. If the student fails to gain this status, the student is required to withdraw. Application for readmittance is considered after a lapse of one semester. (A student required to withdraw at the end of the second semester is ineligible to attend the subsequent summer session.)

8. A low cumulative grade point average may affect financial aid eligibility. See the Financial Aid section of this catalog for more information.

3. A student on probation discusses with his/her advisor the desirability of reducing the student's course load as an aid in regaining good standing. If the course load is reduced, consultation between the student and advisor and the advice of the Records Office determines 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 also discusses with his/her advisor the extent of extracurricular activities and outside employment.

GRADING SYSTEM A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D DE

4. 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. 5. Eligibility for extracurricular activities requires the minimum grade point average (CPA) for a student in good standing. As stated in # 1 above, the required CPA is the same for both the semester and the cumulative. A list of Martin Luther College activities which require eligibility appears in the Knight's Daybook.

1 Within the first two weeks of the semester and with the approval of the advisor, the instructor, and the Records Office, a student may drop and/ or add a course. 2 Under special circumstances a student may drop a course with the approval of the advisor, the Records Office, and the instructor after the first two weeks of the semester and up to two weeks after midterm. For these courses the student's record shows either WP (withdrawal passing) or WF (withdrawal failing). Neither the WP nor the WF is counted in computing the grade point average. 3 An unauthorized withdrawal from a course is recorded as an F. This F is counted in the grade point average. 4. Under special circumstances a student may appeal for exceptions to the policy by writing to the appropriate dean.

Withdrawals

Advanced Placement High school students who take the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Tests may receive college credit. For details and passing grades for particular subjects, contact the MLC Records Office.

Credit by Examination Students may request to test out of certain courses. Requests are submitted to the chair of the division that offers the course. If possible, the request should be made and the test taken before registration for courses and/ or before the semester begins. The deadline for requesting credit by examination is the second class meeting of the course. Tests must be completed within one calendar week after the request is submitted. Each test may be taken only once. A $25 fee is charged for each test. A test grade of C or higher must be earned to receive credit for the course. A combined maximum of 30 credits earned by Advanced Placement testing or by this credit by examination policy may be applied to a degree program. A student cannot use credit by examination to earn credit for courses that were failed. Courses available for credit by examination are Computer Applications, Mathematics: A Human Endeavor, Elementary Statistics, Mathematical Analysis I, Statistics, and Introduction to Fine Arts. Appeals for application of this policy to other courses are made to the appropriate division chair. The division chair, in consultation with the course instructor and the Academic Dean of the student's program, shall have authority to grant or deny the student's request.

from the College

1. The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must first report to the Vice President for Student Life for instructions on procedures. 2. A student who withdraws from the college after the first two weeks of the semester has WP or WF recorded for courses. 3. Students are not permitted to withdraw officially during the last two weeks of any semester. 4. When a student does not follow official procedures in voluntarily withdrawing from the college, a note recording the unauthorized withdrawal is transcribed on the student's permanent record. 5. Students who withdraw from college and later apply for readmission must fulfill the graduation requirements that are in place at the time of readmission.

Because the college considers the ability to express oneself clearly, correctly, and responsibly in writing to be a necessity for college work and an essential characteristic of a Christian minister, it strives to teach and maintain good writing practices. 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.

STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY COURSE LISTING FOR STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY (For students with freshman, sophomore, or Junior standing In 2003-2004 and subsequent years) The Studies in Pastoral Ministry curriculum at Martin Luther College prepares men to enroll at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. This course of study stresses foreign languages. Hebrew and Greek, required of all students, are the original languages of Scripture. A student selects a non-biblical language option from a menu of German, Latin, a German/Latin combination, Spanish, or another spoken language. Lutheran theologians did much of their writing in German and Latin, while Spanish is the primary language of a growing segment of the American population. A student may also fulfill the non-biblical language requirement with achievement in another living language. In addition, the curriculum includes a selective liberal arts emphasis, with special attention given to literature and history. Academic Credits Required for the Bachelor of Arts Degree Introduction to Martin Luther College 1 Psychology/Philosophy 7 English (including an area elective) 15 Greek (including an area elective or GRK 3001) 19 Hebrew 14 Non-biblical language option (student chooses one) German 12 Latin 13 Confessional Languages (German and Latin) 19 Spanish................................................

12

The curriculum includes two Greek tracks. The koine Greek track serves students in a Seminary Certification Program as well as traditional students who display modest foreign language skills on their high school record. The track allows them a higher probability of success in New Testament study. The classical Greek track offers students the fullest preparation for their work in the New Testament. The academic dean assigns entering students to a Greek track on the basis fo their high school record and their ACT predictive data. Students in the koine Greek track have three free electives. Students in the confessional languages option will usually also have fewer free electives. Students may select a maximum of three free electives from one academic area. Total Credits required for graduation

133/134

A student enrolling in Studies in Pastoral Ministry with the entrance requirements and preferences listed in the Admissions section can complete his program of study in four years. Most students can complete a degree program in four years even if they are lacking some of the preferred high school credits.

SEMINARY CERTIFICATION

PROGRAM

For Studies in Pastoral Ministry Purpose The purpose of the Seminary Certification Program at Martin Luther College is to provide an opportunity for men who are older than traditional college students to prepare for the pastoral ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).

Objectives 1. To accept into the Seminary Certification Program qualified men who have expressed a desire to serve in the WELS pastoral ministry. 2. To provide these men with the academic skills needed to meet the course requirements at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (WLS).

Policies 1. All men who are interested in preparing for the pastoral ministry and who are married or older than 21 should contact the Pastoral Studies Institute at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (address on page 13 of the MLC Catalog). 2. Men whom the Pastoral Studies Institute recommends to apply for the MLC Seminary Certficiation Program must meet with the Non-traditional Student Committee of Studies in Pastoral Ministry before they are accepted into the program. 3. The Seminary Certification Program is designed for men who have demonstrated spiritual maturity and leadership skills in their local congregations. 4. Men older than traditional college students have the option of a degree program or a Seminary Certification Program. 5. Under ordinary circumstances, men discontinuing their studies at MLC and later returning resume the program they were carrying when they discontinued. 6. The Records Office tailors a Seminary Certification Program to correspond with the academic background of each student. 7. The Records Office arranges a program that allows each student to acquire the needed academic skills in the fewest possible semesters. 8. MLC awards a certificate to men who successfully complete their prescribed program.

Goal The goal of the Seminary Certification Program is to recommend to WLS a continuing number of mature men who have demonstrated appropriate spiritual, academic, and personal attributes to continue preparation for the pastoral office.

STUDIES IN EDUCATIONAL MINISTRY

'''-'

Martin Luther College's teacher education programs are designed to prepare students for the teaching ministry. Students demonstrate a firm grounding in God' s Word, demonstrate competency in planning, teaching, and evaluating lessons, and demonstrate the ability to create effective learning environments. Students also demonstrate a "service attitude" toward their students, their schools, and their congregations. Included within the education curriculum are music courses so that, as far as abilities permit, graduates may serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Programs available are elementary education, secondary education, and early childhood education.

The programs in Educational Ministry exist to prepare qualified educators and staff ministers for schools and congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, both Teacher Education programs and Staff Ministry programs lead to Bachelor of Science degrees. The following policies apply to all Studies in Educational Ministry students. 1. A 2.5 GPA is required for all majors. The majors are staff ministry, early childhood education, elementary education, and the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) majors. 2. A minimum grade point average of 2.00 for the three Bible courses (REL 1001, REL 1002, and REL 2001) and a minimum grade point average of 2.00 for the three doctrine courses (REL 3001, REL 3002, and REL 4001) are required for graduation.

Elementary Education Major • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Communication Arts & Literature Specialty (Grades 5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Mathematics Specialty (Grades 5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Science Specialty (Grades 5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Social Studies Specialty (Grades 5-8)

Teacher Education Programs To prepare qualified educators the college offers a curriculum that leads to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The elementary teacher education program is approved by the Minnesota Board of Teaching. Successful completion of the curriculum leading ~othe Bachelor of Science in Education degree enables Its graduates to meet the Minnesota standards for elementary school licensure.

Students also have the option of adding one of the following non-licensure Emphasis areas - Coaching, German, Music, Physical Education, Spanish.

The education curriculum includes a thorough general education, a more in-depth study of a curricular area, and professional education courses. Professional education includes courses that prepare graduates for teaching and gives students six clinical experiences plus student teaching in which they apply standards of effective teaching. Students must take the Praxis I (PreProfessional Skills Test) by the end of the sophomore year. Students also are required to take the Praxis II tests (Elementary Education: Content Knowledge and Principles of Teaching and Learning: Grades K-6). Students are required to successfully pass these tests before their approval for graduation and licensure.

Since the curriculum has been redesigned, individual programs for Seniors will vary. These students should consult their advisors and the program plans for their respective areas of study.

Martin Luther College Seal The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod's college for ministry bears the name of the great sixteenth century reformer, Martin Luther, whose ministry is an inspiration for all who aspire to the high calling of the public ministry today. The MLC campus is located in the city of New VIm in the state of Minnesota.

1995 MLC opened on July 1, 1995.

MDCCCLXVjMDCCCLXXXIV MLC continues the service rendered to the WELS by NorthwesternCollege of Watertown, Wisconsin (1865-1995), and by Dr. Martin Luther College of New VIm, Minnesota (1884-1995). The Roman numerals on the seal are the founding dates of these two schools.

Luther's Seal MLC borrows from the seal of Dr. Luther. He wrote the following things about the items which MLC has appropriated for its seal: Cross: "A black cross within the heart reminds me that faith in Christ crucified saves me." Heart: "Although the cross is black, mortified and intended to cause pain, yet it does not change the color of the heart, does not destroy nature, i.e., does not kill, but keeps alive. The just shall live by faith!" Rose: "The heart is fixed upon the center of a white rose, to show that faith causes joy, consolation, and peace. The rose is white because white is the ideal color of all angels and blessed spirits." V-I- V-I- T: "The letters of the word VIVIT [Latin for 'he lives'] are written on the petals of the rose. Because Christ lives, I too shall live."

MOTTO Below, supporting the seal, are words of Jesus from John 14:6, "I am the way [Latin: VIA], the truth [Latin: VERITAS], and the life [Latin: VITA].

COLORS Red, white, and black are the colors of MLC. Black: MLC trains young people to bring the true way of life to a world dying in darkness.

White: The way is by grace alone. Truth is by Scripture alone. Life is by faith alone. These are the darkness-dispelling gifts Jesus brings. Red: Red is the color of martyrs, Christ's faithful witnesses. MLCs mission is to send forth ministers of the gospel who proclaim but one way, but one truth, and but one life.
