President's Council

A message from the president

During “move-in” weekend last summer, my husband and I joined incoming first-year students for orientation meetings, receptions, tours, and picnics. Throughout this busy weekend, Luther’s college pastors offered us opportunities to gather for worship and reflection.  At these gatherings, we sang together a prayer that speaks movingly to the journeys we all as “first-years” were beginning:

    Take, oh, take me as I am;
    Summon out what I shall be;
    Set your seal upon my heart
    And live in me.*

Singing this hymn again and again with the first-year students, I was reminded of the Luther College mission statement, which calls students, faculty, and staff to be “enlivened and transformed by encounters with one another, by the exchange of ideas, and by the life of faith and learning.”  

At Luther, students gather to live together in community, to engage with faculty and staff in a way of learning that disciplines minds and develops whole persons, and to discern their callings and prepare for their careers. During their years at Luther, students are encouraged, challenged, and inspired to “summon out what [they] shall be.”

In classrooms, gyms, labs, rehearsal rooms, offices, performance halls, studios, and residence halls, Luther faculty and staff serve as teachers, coaches, mentors, and guides for Luther students as they learn, grow, and make decisions about their futures. For more than 150 years, Luther College has fulfilled its mission to be this very special and distinctive learning community.

In this President’s Council report, we recognize the many alumni and friends of the college who have given generously to support Luther College at this important and significant level. As Luther’s 10th president, I am privileged to extend many thousand thanks to these alumni and friends and to all alumni and friends of Luther who so generously share their time, talents, and treasure to assure that Luther College thrives now and for many years to come.

Soli Deo Gloria!

President Paula J. Carlson, Ph.D.

The following list contains individuals and organizations that have provided financial support to Luther College of $1,500 or more—or $750 or more for alumni in their first decade after graduation—in the past calendar year, January 1–December 31, 2014, and those who have provided $100,000 or more to the college cumulatively through December 31, 2014. In recognition of their leadership in giving, these donors qualify as members of the Luther College President’s Council.

Gifts at all levels are vital in providing scholarship assistance for students, ensuring the success of academic and co-curricular programs, and meeting needs for technology, equipment, and facility maintenance and replacement.
