People at Laurier

Karen Hagan, Faculty of Social Work Karen Hagan is from Edmonton, Alberta and completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Alberta. She first discovered Laurierís MSW program through website research and was particularly attracted to it because of its excellent reputation and practicum opportunities. Karenís interest in Social Work came through her desire to work closely with people and her interest in community capacity building especially with children and non-profit organizations that work with marginalized populations. ďI like the Waterloo region mostly because of its proximity to Toronto, yet still far enough away to avoid the heavy traffic and hustle. As for the amenities, I have to say the Kitchener Market is perfect for students and takes up most of my Saturdays! I would encourage new students to get interested in the learning because the Laurier MSW provides a lot of space for dialogue - you just have to take advantage of it.Ē
