MLC Alumni Association members share a common bond. Well trained and prepared to share their Savior, they are committed to serving Him however and wherever the Lord chooses to use them.

The MLCAA is made up of over 10,000 graduates and attendees of Martin Luther College, Dr Martin Luther College, Northwestern College, and Martin Luther Academy/Dr Martin Luther High School. Together, we support and pray for the current students and ministry of MLC. We also take advantage of opportunities to meet together and encourage one another.

The board meets on campus annually during homecoming weekend to provide direction, plan events, coordinate funding efforts, and devise communication plans. They also meet throughout the year via teleconference. The 2019 annual meeting took place on October 11 and the 2020 meeting is scheduled for Friday, October 2.

The Association is excited about the current campaign to fund an endowed scholarship and erect a statue of Jesus on the campus mall as part of a 25th Anniversary gift to our alma mater. Learn more about the project here and prayerfully consider supporting it with a generous gift.

To share your thoughts as to how MLCAA can better serve you and our alma mater, please contact our current president, Jason Oakland at or any of the other current board members listed below.
