Founders' Day Dinner
The Founders' Day Dinner is a time when Luther College pauses each year to honour the individuals whose contributions allow the College to pursue its mission and fulfill its vision. Held in the fall, the evening is named in recognition of all those people, past and present, who have participated in the establishment and growth of the College.
Luther College's Distinguished Service Award, an award granted to individuals who have shown dedication to and support for Luther College and its mission, is also presented at the Dinner.
