Ph.D., Emory University
Fred Glennon's field of teaching and research is in the area of Religion, Social Ethics, and Society, particularly their interrelationship with public policies on welfare, poverty, and labor markets. He teaches the following courses: REL 405: Ethics from the Perspective of the Oppressed; REL 337: Christian Social Ethics; REL 336: Comparative Religious Ethics and Social Concerns; REL 314: Church and State; REL 300: Religion and Healing; and REL 200: Religious Perspectives. As a Carnegie National Scholar (2001-2002), Fred also engages in the scholarship of teaching and learning, in which the classroom setting becomes a locus of sustained scholarly focus. The result of that project was the publication, "Experiential Learning and Social Justice Action: An Experiment in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning," in Teaching Theology and Religion (February 2004). His service to the American Academy of Religion (AAR) includes serving as the Editor of Spotlight on Teaching, having served as Chair of the Academic Relations Committee (2005-2010), as a member of the Board of Directors (2005-2010), and as Co-Chair of the Ethics Section (1999-2002). He received the AAR’s Excellence in Teaching Award (2008). At Le Moyne he has been honored as the Kevin G. O'Connell Teaching Professor in the Humanities.
