MLC Alumni Relations

Welcome to the Alumni Relations Office at Martin Luther College (MLC). We are thankful for you and pray that you continue to proclaim the Word of God faithfully, whatever your vocation.

At MLC, we embrace the rich heritage and diverse background of our alumni, including those from our predecessor institutions, Northwestern College, Dr. Martin Luther College, and Milwaukee Lutheran Teacher’s College, as well as two high schools that called our campus home, Dr. Martin Luther High School and Martin Luther Academy. All our alumni are an integral part of our alumni community.

The Alumni Relations Office exists to equip you to be informed, involved, and invested ambassadors for MLC and its mission of training men and women to meet the public ministry needs of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Whether you graduated recently or decades ago, we invite you to stay connected with your alma mater and fellow alumni.
