CMU alumni Codi Guenther (BA '08, Peace and Conflict Transformation Studies) and Diana Epp-Fransen (BA '03, Biblical and Theological Studies) are aiding newcomers to Canada by guiding them in the search for affordable housing.
Having worked as executive director for New Journey Housing for nearly 12 years, Guenther describes the work as broad ranging, involving everything from filing income tax so that newcomers have access to child benefit taxes, GST cheques, and subsidized housing, to teaching workshops on home rental and home purchasing, financing, budgeting, and investing.

The CMU learning community has been amazing all year in collectively honouring one another's health, safety, and well-being. I'm deeply grateful to all CMU students, staff, and faculty for sharing so much good learning, laughter, care, and generosity in the midst of all that's been awkward and hard.
For the upcoming school year starting September 2021, CMU is planning for primarily in-person classes, with some accommodation via hybrid/online formats where needed. As it has over the past 12 months, CMU is following the guidelines put forth by Manitoba Health.

For the past 16 years, the CMU School of Music hosts the Verna Mae Janzen Music Competition for music students capable of performing at a high skill level. It is a time, as adjudicator Henrietta Schellenberg puts it, "of comradery and competition for music students, a chance to bring their art to the public, a jewel in the life of the musical calendar at CMU."
