Alumni and Friends of Luther

As part of Luther's Sesquicentennial Strategic Plan, the college has set a goal of increasing the number of students who participate in at least one internship prior to graduation. This goal would not be attainable if it were not for the incredible support that we receive from the Luther alumni network.

The following information is designed to provide you some information about hosting an intern, site expectations, as well as posting an internship with us.
