Martin Luther College COVID-19 Summer Update (07/24/2020)
MLC President Rich Gurgel provides this message from Scripture to help MLC students understand the purpose of our Knights Return policies. We pray this update will encourage our whole campus family toward a spirit of Christian love and understanding as we near the start of our 2020 fall semester.
Watch for more website, email, and social media updates that will provide policy and procedural details as they become available.
Knights Return – 2020 Planning Document
For two months our Martin Luther College fall planning team has prayerfully and carefully assembled a plan that will, God willing, enable MLC to resume on campus instruction this fall.
The plan was formed after many hours of listening to government officials, health professionals, collegiate organizations, new and returning students and their families, our faculty and staff, and to many others in our synod. While we recognize that the rapidly shifting environment around us prohibits us from speaking with certainty about what this fall will bring, today we are releasing our Knights Return document. We will keep updating this document as necessary. Subsequent drafts will always highlight any changes that have been made.
We offer this plan trusting in God’s gracious care for us in our Lord Jesus. At the same time, we also recognize that such trust does not diminish the responsibility God himself entrusts to us to be wise stewards of our health for the sake of our whole campus family as well as for the entire community of New Ulm.
As always, we at MLC welcome your ideas and perspectives to help us in our planning. You may submit them through this online form.
