Current CMU student Jubilee Dueck Thiessen is the third-place finalist in the bi-national C. Henry Smith Peace Oratorical Contest. Her speech, titled "Stewards of Joy: Answering the Call of Ecological Shalom," employs the Christian creation narrative alongside indigenous voices to bring her point across that "disciples of joy" who seek to follow Jesus should pursue a "stewardship of creation in response to our need for ecological shalom." Rather than being overcome with grief, Dueck Thiessen, elaborating on her speech, suggests that "the core of this issue is one of love, we only fear for creation because we love it."

CMU is committed to continue growing and enriching this program, which has included appointing Dr. Christine Kampen Robinson as Director of Practica.
