Protestant and Interfaith Campus Ministry

The Rev. Laurel Harte-Westover is our Protestant/Interfaith campus minister and director of the Interfaith Center. Laurel has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Keene State College in Keene, NH, and a Master of Divinity from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, near Chicago. She is ordained in the United Church of Christ after serving for 20 years as a minister in the United Methodist Church, as well as serving as a chaplain in hospital and residential living settings. Currently, she and her wife live Liverpool, NY.

Laurel is grateful for the opportunity to serve as one of your campus ministers. She is the pastor and spiritual advisor for students, staff and faculty of mainline Protestant denominations (i.e. Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, UMC, UCC, etc.). Like her predecessors, she is committed to interfaith programming, believing God’s love knows no boundaries, including those of you who do not claim any faith tradition. As her denomination proclaims, “No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”  She looks forward to meeting you, offering a listening ear and an open heart.
