Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Waterloo Lutheran Seminary is pleased to announce the appointment of Janet Howitt as executive director of the Delton Glebe Counselling Centre.

“Janet brings with her a wealth of experience acquired during more than two decades of working in different roles with a variety of non-profit, faith-based and government social-service providers across Waterloo Region,” said Mark Harris, the seminary’s principal-dean.

“We’re delighted with her extensive community experience, especially with her support for newcomers to Canada and the region,” said Harris.

Howitt joins to the Glebe centre after serving as community engagement coordinator with Immigration Partnership Waterloo Region since 2012. And for the past two years she has served with Laurier’s Faculty of Social Work as a field instructor and assistant practicum instructor.

“I’m pleased to join the professional, compassionate, client-centred therapists and staff working at the Delton Glebe Counselling Centre,” Howitt said. “It’s exciting to help build a caring, welcoming therapeutic community that’s open to everyone.”

Howitt is no stranger to the seminary community. In 2010, she graduated from Laurier's Waterloo Lutheran Seminary with a joint Master's of Social Work-Master's of Theological Studies degree. At convocation she was awarded a Laurier gold medal for her academic work and her contribution to the seminary community.

The Delton Glebe Counselling Centre is a seminary outreach project strengthening the emotional and spiritual well-being of university students and residents of the entire Waterloo Region.
