ALC recognises the long-term service of its former teaching staff, with the title of lecturer emeritus. Emeritus status is awarded by the Board, upon recommendation of the Principal.
Dr Maurice Schild taught at ALC from 1970 to 2000 in the area of Church history, retiring from full-time teaching in December 2000. The November 2000 edition of the Lutheran Theological Journal (LTJ 34, no. 3) contained an editorial tribute and articles written in his honour.
