Ph.D., Emory University
Fred Glennon's field of teaching and research is in the areas of Religion, Social Ethics, and Society, particularly their interrelationship with public policies on welfare, poverty, and labor markets. His most recent book is Christian Social Ethics: Models, Cases, Controversies (Orbis Books, 2021). He teaches the following courses: REL 200: Religious Perspectives; REL 314: Church and State; REL 336: Comparative Religious Ethics; REL 405: Ethics from the Perspective of the Oppressed; REL 425: Faith that Does Justice; THE 210: Faith and the Roots of Social Justice; and THE 237: Christian Social Ethics. 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), which continues to be cited by other scholars in the field. His service to the American Academy of Religion (AAR) includes having served as the Editor of Spotlight on Teaching (2013-2017), Chair of the Academic Relations Committee (2005-2010), as a member of the Board of Directors (2005-2010), as a member of the Executive Committee of the Board (2008-2010), 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 with the Kevin G. O'Connell, SJ Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Humanities (1999-2002) and the Robert O’Brien, SJ Service Award (2014).
