Education » Colleges/Universities

Greetings! My name is Jim Martin-Schramm. I serve the ELCA as a Professor of Religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. I have the honor of serving as the host for the “Colleges and Universities” section of the Lutherans Restoring Creation website. The purpose of this section is to share information about “care for creation” activities and sustainability initiatives that are taking place on our campuses.

If you would like your email to be added to our newsletter list, please send an email to lrccu@luther.edu. Please send us links to related campus websites, related worship resources, reports on campus sustainability projects, climate action plans, and other related news and resources for posting on the website and in the newsletter. Please send electronic media materials to lrccu@luther.edu. You can also reach us by phone at 563-387-2131. We look forward to the fruits of our collaboration and sharing!
