MLCAA intends to give the Martin Luther statue a thorough cleaning in the summer of 2013 to restore its initial luster.


Bronze oxidation has caused Luther to "go green". Investment from the initial casting has also seaped through - see shoe

The MLC Alumni Association strives to provide opportunities for alumni to serve their college, and for the college to serve its alumni.

The MLC Alumni Association is made up of over 10,000 graduates and attendees of Martin Luther College, its two predecessor institutions (Dr. Martin Luther College, New Ulm, MN and Northwestern College, Watertown, WI), Martin Luther Academy, Dr. Martin Luther High School, and others interested in joining our efforts.

Heartfelt gifts to the MLCAA help Martin Luther College ( train the next generation of pastors, teachers, and staff ministers to shepherd God's flock. The training MLC students receive is broad and varied, yet the uniting element and constant focus is to fill their hearts with the Spirit through daily scripture study. MLC alumni go out into the world with a servant's heart and a burning desire to share the message of God's grace to us in Christ.

Alumni and friends who have experienced the blessings of this training are eager to stay connected to their college and give back to its important ministry. They also appreciate opportunities to reunite and encourage one another at events both on and off campus.

Donations to the MLCAA are tax-deductible and are distributed according to a 70/30 plan.

  • 70% goes toward non-budgeted projects and items needed to maintain and improve MLC's campus and programs.
  • 30% is distributed to the MLC General Scholarship Fund. In recent years, over $4500 has been collected in support of today's students.

The MLC alumni's first project was to help purchase hymnals for the new Chapel of the Christ. Most recently, the MLCAA was able to fund the refurbishing of the Center Street entry sign. A gift from the student body of 1949-50, it has welcomed guests to the campus and served as a popular photo spot for over 60 years.

The MLCAA board recently adopted two campus projects for completion in Summer of 2013.

The first is a comprehensive cleaning of the Martin Luther statue. A gift from the NWC Board of Control, the statue has pointed students to "Scripture Alone" for 18 years. Recently, the statue has begun "going green" and an interior material called "investment" is leaking through the statue exterior. The cost to restore its initial lustre is approximately $1000. After the initial cleaning, an annual wash and wax will be done by campus maintenance crews.

The second project will transform a cove in the cafeteria into an "Applebees-esque" sports bar setting complete with letter sweaters, jerseys, photos, pennants, and other sports memorabilia from NWC, DMLC, and MLC. Several items have already been contributed, but we are still open to items for consideration. It will cost approximately $1000 to restore, mount, and display the items.

Please also consider another way to support the MLCAA efforts by signing up for the MLCAA Visa card. Once you are approved and the card has been used at least one time, MLCAA receives $50 plus a small percentage of each ongoing purchase. The card is available in 4 designs featuring various MLC campus scenes, carries no annual fee or hidden charges, and offers a variety of bonus programs. Visit to apply or contact the alumni relations office to have a print application sent to you.

Thank you for your ongoing prayers and support of MLC and the alumni association.
