Student Activities Council (SAC)

Mission Statement
The student activities program (including the Student Activities Council and numerous other student-lead organizations) takes pride in creating programming responsive to the needs and interests of the Luther student population. We strive to provide students with opportunities to engage in cultural, educational, social, and recreational activities that foster the development of leadership and teamwork skills. These organizations are an integral part of the living-learning community at Luther.
