Student Workers

At Luther we provide students the opportunity to be sustainability leaders through a variety of work-study positions. Students work in close collaboration with staff, faculty and students across campus, as well as community members.


Sustainability student workers take on a variety of projects, from website management and marketing to implementing sustainability initiatives such as Residence Hall Composting, Energy Education, Zero Waste Initiatives, Shopping Shuttle and Cafeteria to Community.


Gardeners are responsible for the planting, harvesting, and general upkeep of the Luther gardens and greenhouse, which provide produce to Luther Dining Services. The addition of a moveable high tunnel has allowed the students more opportunities to grow food earlier in the spring and later into the fall.


No matter the weather conditions, recyclers make daily rounds to residence halls and academic building to collect recyclables and compost. Students from this crew also help with move-out waste and other alternative waste collections.
