Canadian Mennonite University
Canadian Mennonite University is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, a major multi-cultural centre only a few miles from the geographic centre of Canada. CMU is a Christian university in the Anabaptist tradition, offering challenging programs and recognized degrees in undergraduate and graduate studies. CMU is a member of the association of universities and colleges of Canada.
CMU is focused on strong academics, faith development, excellent teaching and faculty mentorship, hospitable community, and experiential learning. We offer a close-knit community that unites academic excellence with theology. While our name is Mennonite, students from all backgrounds study here.
CMU specializes in undergraduate degrees in humanities, and social sciences. CMU's school of music provides students opportunities to receive bachelor of music degrees in five concentrations, as well as a unique bachelor of music therapy degree.
The Redekop School of Business, providing Bachelor of Business Administration, with opportunities in a Co-op or International exchange, was launched in 2011. Our Science program provides students with excellent Pre-Professional opportunities. CMU has Graduate Studies, a MA in Theology, or Christian Ministries, or Graduate Studies in Christian Ministries Diploma. Finally, CMU provides students for a unique opportunity to study abroad (Guatemala, South Africa, and French Africa) on our Outtatown Discipleship School.
The CMU programs reach approximately 1,750 students (920 FTE) who come from eight Canadian provinces, the united states, and nine other countries. The faculty complement includes 45 full-time faculty as well as part-time faculty and sessional appointments. Over 85 percent of the full-time faculty holds doctoral degrees from universities across Canada and the United States. Faculty are uniformly dedicated to a dynamic teaching-learning process that is informed by their ongoing research, scholarly practice, and personal commitments.
CMU is funded by its supporting church constituencies, private donors from across Canada, the Government of Manitoba, and student tuitions and fees. Its current annual budget is approximately $13 million. A new building project—the construction of the new CMU library, learning commons, and pedestrian bridge—is slated to begin in summer 2013 for completion in September 2014.
