Luther is . . . sustainable. We’ve been a leader in college sustainability since long before it was popular. We use renewable energy—solar, wind, geothermal, and biodiesel—to help power campus and achieve our goal of zero carbon emissions.

We eat locally. College gardens and local sources provide more than a third of our food. We compost or donate what we don’t eat.

We care for our land—almost 1,000 acres of it—in ways that encourage diverse plants and animals to thrive here.

We teach sustainability through classes and internships. We even have environmental study-away programs on several continents.
