James Martin-Schramm

I joined the Religion faculty at Luther College in 1993. I am an ordained member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and have a doctorate in Christian Ethics from Union Theological Seminary in New York City. 

Most of my scholarship has focused on issues related to ethics and public policy, and a lot of my recent work has been in energy and climate policy. 

I spent most of my youth growing up in Germany and South Africa because my father worked for John Deere. I think those years gave me a global perspective that has influenced my career in various ways. 

I have been involved in various campus sustainability initiatives at Luther and am active in various organization in Iowa working on climate change and energy issues.
