In January of 2004, more than 1,500 alumni/ae of Luther Seminary and its predecessor bodies responded enthusiastically to a survey initiated by the Luther Seminary Alumni/ae Council. The council hoped to span the information gap between Luther and alums, and "to listen better to the actual needs of our constituency," said Joel Quie, '86, president of the Alumni/ae Council.
The survey addressed:
The data was divided into three demographic categories: All Respondents, Class of 1960 and beyond, and Class of 1990 and beyond. These distinctions allow us to look at more specific needs and trends for groups at different stages in their ministry.
Additional questions were asked about specific continuing education opportunities and other ministry resources. These results have been shared with those working directly in these areas.
The Luther Seminary Alumni/ae Council thanks all who participated in this survey.
