What is the Luther College Sustainability House?

The Luther College Sustainability House is a co-ed, two-story home located in a residential neighborhood within walking distance of campus. The Sustainability House, also known as LEFSE (Luther’s Environmentally, Fiscally, and Socially responsible Edifice), offers a living-learning environment where students reside together that share a dedication to an environmentally, socially, and fiscally sustainable lifestyle. Members of the house take part in house meetings, book discussions, hold house leadership roles, develop an annual operating plan for the house, and also provide education and outreach to members of the Luther and surrounding communities.
