Augsburg was begun as a seminary in
1869, at Marshall, Wisconsin. It was the
first theological school founded by
Norwegian Lutherans in America. Through
an arrangement with a private institution
known as Marshall Academy, the
Seminary was at first housed in the
academy building. Students who needed
further preparation in academic subjects
were to obtain this in the academy. In the
autumn of 1872 Augsburg Seminary was
removed to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where
a building had been erected for its use. In
the same year the school was incor~orated
under theVlawsof Minnesota. Its Gm was
to train ministers for the Lutheran
congregations which were being organized
in growing numbers in the pioneer
settlements that were spreading rapidly
over the Northwest.
The College was established when it
became evident that in order to get
students who were adequately prepared for
theological study a college department was
needed. In 1874 a curriculum was planned
which provided for one year of preparatory
studies and four years of college work
along two lines, a classical course to
prepare students for theology, and a
scientific course to prepare for other
professions. The first college students were
enrolled in 1874 and the first class was
graduated in 1879.
In 1900 a high school course covering
three years was established which in 1910
was expanded t o a standard four-year
course. This was discontinued in 1933. In
the years 1916-1919 the college course was
thoroughly revised. As a result of this
and of subsequent growth, the earlier
classical course was greatly modified and
supplemented by social and scientific
studies and a more general emphasis upon
the study of the humanities. In recent years
there has been continuous study and
modification of the curriculum including
G E NERAL
the introduction of a number of new majors to meet the
developing needs of the students. The divisional organization
was adopted in 1945. At the present time 26 majors are
Coeducation was introduced in the College in 1922.
In February, 1963, with the merger of the Lutheran Free
Church into The American Lutheran Church, Augsburg College
became affiliated with the latter church body. At the close
of its ninety-third academic year, in the spring of 1963,
Augsburg Theological Seminary merged with Luther

aims and objectives
IJ Augsburg College is a Christian liberal arts college of The
American Lutheran Church. The faculty and the Board of
Regents of the college affirm the following as their understanding of the aims, philosophy, objectives and character
of this institution.
To contribute t o the true good of human life and society.
To contribute to the building of free and living congregations in the community of the Christian Church.
The Christian message concerning the redemptive act d
God in Christ constitutes the greatest potential for good in
human life and society; but this potential is realized only
insofar as it is actualized in the minds and hearts of individuals.
The redemption of the mind constitutes the unique educational task laid upon the Christian Church; in seeking t o
relate all learning to the truth of the Christian faith, the
Christian college performs its greatest service both to the
Church and to society.
Where there is an atmosphere of free and honest inquiry, truth
has the overwhelming advantage; the Christian college, therefore, pursues its purposes not by indoctrination or coercion,
but by inviting teachers and students to join in a common
search for truth and in a common attempt to see all truth
in relation to ultimate Truth.
To attract to the college students of high ability and genuine
religious concern who can reap the maximum benefit from a
program of Christian higher education.
To provide a campus setting that is conducive to the spiritual,
mental, moral and physical well-being of its students.
To stimulate its students' intellectual interest, and to assist
them to develop the habits and skills necessary for sound
To acquaint its students with the spiritual, cultural and intellectual riches of mankind, both for the sake of the enrichment
of their own lives and, through them, for the enrichment of
their homes and communities.
To lead its students to a deeper understanding and experience
of the Christian Gospel in its relation to every area of life
To aid its students in discovering and clarifying their peculiar
aptitudes and interests, and to provide training and counsel
that will assist them in preparing for a life work appropriate
To aid its students in the development of Christian attitudes
and Christian qualities of character; and to encourage each
student to look upon his life as a Christian vocation, and an
opportunity for service to God and man.
Augsburg College is a Christian community of life and learning.
As a Christian academic community, Augsburg seeks that
high level of excellence which is appropriate to such a community.
Augsburg treasures its religious and cultural heritage as an
institution founded by Lutheran immigrants from Norway who
sought to play a creative role in American life and society,
and seeks to preserve the enduring values of this heritage in
the life of the college community today.

skills in working with people are considered in making this
Grants-in-aid are available to students in good standing who
are in special need of financial assistance. In awarding these
grants, the Student Personnel Committee gives primary consideration to demonstrated financial need which is determined
by examining a statement of the resources and anticipated
expenses of both the student and his family.
An employment service, located in the Personnel Office,
assists students in obtaining part-time remunerative work.
Many students find it possible to pay part of their college
expenses with money earned in this way. The types of work
available are of various kinds, including recreational leadership,
restaurant work, domestic service, sales work, and secretarial
and clerical work. The college is concerned that employment
not interfere with a student's academic work. Therefore, it is
desirable that Freshmen have sufficient funds to pay their entire
expenses for at least one semester. Part-time employment may
then be secured in accordance with the need of the student
and his ability to handle extra work.
Students are employed by the college in several areas. For
these positions preference is given to upper-class students who
have maintained a good scholastic average.
Assistance in obtaining summer employment is also provided
each spring by the Employment Service. Application for parttime or summer employment may be made in the Personnel

The quality of a student's work in high
school, type of course program, scores on
college aptitude tests, and recommendations are important factors in considering
an application. Augsburg College seeks
students who rank high in the high school graduating class, a t
least in the upper half, and score average or above on college
It is recommended that a student have a t least 12 academic
subjects in his college preparatory curriculum, which should
include four units of English, and at least two units each
of a foreign language, social studies, mathematics, and science.
A unit is defined as a course covering one academic year and
equivalent to at least 120 hours of classwork.
For entrance to the Freshman Class, either the tests of the
American College Testing Program (ACT) or the Scholastic
Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination
Board is required.
A recent physical examination is also required. Students will
be provided with blanks to be filled out and returned to the
Student Personnel Offi,ce by August 15. The health report must

taken a t Augsburg. A maximum of 64 semester credits is
allowed on transfer from a junior college.
Advanced placement is granted to students who qualify,
on the basis of work taken in high school or elsewhere, to
enroll in courses beyond the beginning course. Placement may
be determined by tests, or by the level and length of the course
Advanced standing, that is, college credit, is granted to
high school students who have successfully completed a college-level course provided they received a grade of 3, 4, or 5
on the Advanced Placement Examinations.
The influences which mould life and
character on a college campus are of many
kinds. While the exercises of classroom,
laboratory, and library form the organizing
basis of college activity, they need to be
supplemented by other than academic
forces. These intangible but very real supplementary influences have much to do
with creating the spirit of an institution.
At Augsburg definite emphasis is placed
upon the maintenance of a wholesome
spirit of Christian community living.
Students are urged to give conscious
attention to this personal and spiritual side
of their development and thus contribute
toward the prevalence of a vital and happy
Christian atmosphere on the campus.
It is the earnest desire of those who direct

It is expected of each student that his life,

campus, shall be worthy of a member of
a Christian College. Those who do not feel
drawn to this quality of life and to the

not seek to be enrolled at Augsburg. A

recreation standards and discipline
At Augsburg all the work of the college rests on certain
Biblical affirmations about human nature and man's relation
to God. The college regards the Christian life as the truly significant life. This life implies an intimate relation to the person
of Christ. In the content of this primary relationship, the
Christian also lives in a relationship to people, to events, to
things. The fact that God not only created the world but
became Man gives evidence that life in this world is not to
The Christian liberal arts college takes seriously these relationships and therefore seeks to educate the whole man. It
follows that one of its important responsibilities is to establish
recreational programs and policies that contribute to this end.
It should be clear, however, that in an age which is much
concerned with the pursuit of pleasure, a college like Augsburg
should never subordinate its academic program to leisuretime activities. On the contrary, the recreational program must
be in the context of, and be congruent with, the major intellectual quests of the college; and both must have as their goal
to help the individual to live an effectual Christian life in the
In settirig up a recreational and social program, Augsburg is
conscious of its position as a coeducational Christian college
of liberal arts. The program takes into account the relationship between sexes and seeks to provide normal and healthy
opportunities for the expression of the mutual attraction of
the sexes. Augsburg offers a varied and selective recreational
and social program which gives preference to those activities
which are emancipatory rather than restrictive, those which
enrich community life rather than those which are divisive or
encourage selfish satisfactions.
The college provides a variety of activities designed to meet
these requirements. The social program includes a number of
organized all-school events combined with many lessstructured activities designed for specified smaller groups. In
attempting to meet the needs and interests of all Augsburg
students, we make use of all existing facilities on campus and
many of those which are available in the Twin City area.
In seeking to develop a constructive recreational program,
some limitations have been placed upon certain other activities.
The college is opposed to all forms of gambling. It forbids the
possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages in dormitories, in any college-approved place of residence, or a t any
college-sponsored event. Any student found under the influence of liquor is subject to disciplinary action. Social, or
ballroom dancing, is not a part of the recreational program of
the college. Students are encouraged to be discriminating in
all types of recreation in which they engage, that their time
may be well spent, and strong moral and ethical values may
be developed. Such common activities as television viewing
and movie-going, for example, can easily become time-wasting
and even detrimental to the development of moral and ethical
Without attempting to dictate to the individual conscience,
the college regards it as its right to ask its students to adapt
themselves to the social program approved by the college and
to follow it as members of the college community. Although
the college lays down specific rules regarding most matters
only with respect to activities centering on the campus, it
reserves the right to dismiss any student whose continuation
in college is deemed undesirable for social as well as for academic reasons. It is the policy of the college that such action
shall not be taken capriciously, but only after the available
campus resources of counseling and judicial processes have
been utilized. Thus, disciplinary problems are first dealt with
through counseling. Those not solved in this way are channeled to a faculty-student Judicial Council through the Office
of the Dean of Students. In all such cases, careful investigation
and the privilege of a hearing precede any disciplinary action.
The Religious Life Commission, composed of students and
faculty, endeavors to promote a religious program that will
stimulate growth of Christian life in the Augsburg community.
Chairman of this council is the student Commissioner of
Religious Activities. Areas for which this committee carries
primary responsibility are the Mid-Week services, Faith and
Life Weeks, prayer meetings, and informal group meetings and
This Commission also serves as a coordinating agency for all
voluntary Christian organizations on campus. The principal
organization is the Student Christian Association. The SCA
seeks to serve as a stimulus and outlet for Christian faith
and life. Students participate in regional and national Lutheran Student Association of America Conferences, and conduct a
schedule of meetings on campus.
The Mission Society, the service organization of SCA promotes
interest in missions through a program of study, fellowship,
worship, and service. A highlight of the year is the Mission
Festival, a conference devoted to the study of missionary activity and recruitment of workers.
Regular convocations are held each Thursday throughout
the year. These programs acquaint the campus community
with outstanding personalities in various fields. A wide range
of interests is covered, including the scientific, political, social,
religious, and artistic.
social and recreational activities
Students at Augsburg are given many opportunities for
social training and recreation. The Student Council through the
Commissioner of Social Activities, assisted by a Programming
Commission, sponsors a wide variety of activities each month
and an all-school activity which all students may attend. Most
of these are informal. The Sophomore and Junior classes
sponsor semi-formal banquets. The Associated Women
Students and a number of other organizations sponsor teas,
dinners, and social affairs on and off campus.
Music and the Fine Arts
Augsburg's location in Minneapolis gives its students unique
opportunities to make use of some of the finest educational
and cultural advantages which the Northwest has to offer.
Excellent art collections are to be found in the Minneapolis
Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center. The Twin City
libraries are extensive in their services. The Historical Museum
in St. Paul gives access to large collections of historical material. The Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra programs and
other concerts afford rich opportunity for the enjoyment of

Purpose and Philosophy of Intercollegiate Athletics
It is the purpose of Augsburg College to provide an
intercollegiate athletic program which is in harmony with its
Christian philosophy. This philosophy is to be reflected in the
conduct and outlook of both the players and the spectators.
The educational program of the college recognizes that
recreation and play are a fundamental part of human life, and
that this phase of life needs to be cultivated if physical, mental,
and emotional health are to be maintained. Intercollegiate
athletics, as a phase of that program, gives recognition to the
fact that competitive play can contribute to the development
of student interests, skills, insights, and loyalties.
More specifically, the following outcomes are sought: (1) The
student participating in athletics should acquire and exhibit,
both in and out of athletics, such basic qualities of character
as self-discipline, honesty, sense of fair play, and cooperation.
(2) The participant should develop the knowledge, interests,
and skills which will be of special use to him in such vocations
as teaching and coaching or recreational leadership, or in his
own recreational activities. Far from being set apart from his
educational goal or in any way competing with it, the student's
participation in intercollegiate athletics must either contribute
directly to this goal or be complementary to his other educational activities. (3) The student spectator should acquire and
exhibit some of the finer qualities of Christian character, such
as self-restraint, sense of fair play, appreciation of high-grade
performance on the part of both opponents and fellow-students,
and respect for individual personality. (4) The intercollegiate
athletic program should contribute to the development
of a unified and healthy "school spirit." Enthusiasm for intercollegiate athletics or other co-curricular activities should not
overshadow pride in high scholastic achievement, nor can it
take the place of a well-rounded and effective intramural and
general recreational program.
In order to participate in certain extracurricular and
cocurricular activities, students must meet established
Eligibility for participation in intercollegiate athletics is
governed by the rules of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic

all possible. Other information concerning admission and
entrance requirements can be found in another section of the
Counseling services are maintained in an effort to assist each
student to obtain the maximum benefits from the learning
experiences offered a t Augsburg College. Matters such as
uncertainty over vocational choice or educational planning,
religious uncertainty, health, financial problems, personal and
social adjustment and personal deficiencies can interfere with
the learning process and are dealt with in counseling sessions.
It is hoped that through counseling, students will develop more
realistic conceptions of themselves and the surrounding world,
and keener awareness of resources available to them as they
meet the problems of daily life.
At Augsburg the counseling process is carried on a t several
levels. All faculty members participate in the counseling
program, and each new student is assigned to a faculty
counselor who works with him until he chooses a major field
of study. At that time, the major adviser becomes his
counselor. In addition, there are faculty members who have
specialized training in counseling and techniques for dealing
with problems of adjustment. The Dean of Students and the
Dean of Women are special counselors to the men and women,
respectively. The counseling program is coordinated by the
Office of the Dean of Students in accordance with the plans
and policies established by the Student Personnel Committee.
Students who have personal problems are encouraged to seek
help through counseling conferences. If a serious problem
develops which demands professional skill and more time than
the professor has to spend in counseling, the student is
referred to the Office of the Dean of Students or Dean of
Women. A further referral may be made to the College
Chaplain, in the case of spiritual problems, or to the College
Physician, in the case of underlying emotional problems. The
College Physician works with the Personnel Deans in the
All new students are given a battery of tests during Freshman
Days. College aptitude scores, English, and reading ability
scores are used by counselors to help students plan their

Division Courses. Attendance in Upper Division Courses is
voluntary for Juniors and Seniors unless required by the teacher of the class.
In classes for which attendance is required, a record of
attendance is kept and periodic reports on absences are
submitted to the Registrar.
Students who find it necessary to be absent because of illness
or for other reasons should present to their teachers a written
report of the reason for absence. A student will receive a grade
of F if the number of absences for which he has not presented
acceptable excuses is excessive as defined by the instructor of
Absences for tours, field trips and other instructor-arranged
activities are cleared with the Dean of the College. Lists of
participants, with information as to exact periods absent, are
issued by the Dean to all instructors involved.
Teachers deal with tardiness as they see fit. Students arriving
in class late must assume responsibility for reporting their
presence to the teacher.
Tests are given periodically throughout the semester. In the
course of each semester, reports of the grades attained are
made to the Registrar who forwards them to the counselors
and students. Final reports are sent at the close of each
semester to the parents and students.
Written examinations are regularly scheduled at the close of
each semester. No student or class may arrange to take a final
examination in any course before the examination week.
Absence from a final examination without a sufficient reason
will result in a grade of failure in the course concerned. A
student who has to be absent from a final examination because
of a conflict with outside work from which he cannot obtain an
excuse, may arrange to take such an examination during some
period after the time on which the subject is scheduled.
If a student has obtained permission from the Dean of the
College to take a final examination a t another hour than that
scheduled, he is charged a fee of $5 for such an examination.
Before the student takes the examination, he must obtain a
statement from the Registrar's office and bring it to the teacher

in which the Committee on Admissions and Student Standing
believes the student has adequate preparation or background.

apply in writing to this committee. When permission is
granted, the necessary approval forms may be secured at the
office of the Registrar. A fee of $5.00 ($10.00 for students not
currently enrolled) is charged for each credit hour and must be
paid in advance. Examination questions and the answers will

conditions and incompletes
A condition or an incomplete received a t the end of the
semester must be removed within the first six weeks of classes
of the following semester, or within a year if the student has
not re-enrolled. If incompletes and conditions are not removed
within the time allowed, the condition automatically becomes
a failure and the incomplete may be changed to a passing grade
only when the average of the previous work is sufficiently high.
The final grade after the condition examination is taken may
not be higher than D. A fee of $5.00 is charged for an examination making up an incomplete or a condition received at the
end of a semester.

All the aims of the College, as well as those of the Seminary, are bound together by this prin- ciple. To express more distinctly the meaning of this, the follow- ing statement of aims has been formulated by the College faculty: To lead the student to a deeper understanding and personal realization of the truth and power of the Christian Gospel, to the end that he may become an effective participant in the evangelical and missionary task of the Church and an earnest advocate of the Christian way of life both for the individual and for society. To familiarize the student with the culture of our own and other civilizations, not only for the enjoyment this knowledge affords but also for the development of a more sympathetic understanding of our fellow men throughout the world. To develop the student’s interest in the attainment of the common purposes of our country, so that he may work for the welfare of our institutions and for the preservation of our liberties in community and nation, and also develop an en- lightened interest and participation in human affairs through- out the rest of the world. To cultivate in the student a Christian social spirit, in order that he may realize in his life a right balance between what he expects of others and the service he will render his fellow men. To teach the student to discipline his own urges, interests, ambitions, and demands in a way that will effectively con- tribute toward the development of good character. To train the student in scientiﬁc methods of study and also develop his understanding of the relations of science to the welfare of humanity. To stimulate intellectual interest and develop scholarly in~ sight, so that the student may learn to think with accuracy and comprehension at the same time as he experiences an un- derstanding of truth which will help him to integrate the find- ings of science with the deepest spiritual reality.

During 1947 two new buildings were added, both located on 23rd Avenue across the Square from the older part of the Campus. The Gymnasium, a well-built and well-equipped temporary struc- ture, was erected for the College by the Federal Works Agency as a part of a program providing educational facilities for veterans. The Music Hall was acquired by purchase and remodeled to serve the needs of the Music Department. Quite a number of dwellings have been acquired in recent years in the expanded campus area, which are used for faculty and student housing until this need can be met through more per- manent structures. Also three temporary housing units have been erected by the Federal Works Agency on the campus ground. The President’s Home, a residence of modern architectural design, located at the south of the Square, was erected in I 949. THE MUSEUM Some years ago the beginning was made of a Museum for the school. Members of the Alumni Association have presented many valuable gifts. There are several collections: a Madagascar Col- lection, a Santa] Collection, and a considerable collection of rare minerals, curios, etc. Contributions should be sent to Dr. B. J. Kleven, Curator.
