Readers of CMU's The Blazer magazine often say they flip right to the Alumni News section before reading anything else.
Unfortunately, the past several issues of The Blazer were not able to include alumni news. Below is a compilation of news from a few of our alumni (including the most adorable baby photos).

The spring of 2021 saw the release of Germinating Conversations: Stories from Sustained Rural-Urban Dialogue on Food, Faith, Farming, and the Land. Edited by Marta Bunnett Wiebe, a recent graduate of Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) and current Peace and Advocacy Coordinator at MCC Manitoba, and collaboratively published by CMU, A Rocha, Canadian Foodgrains Bank, and Mennonite Central Committee Manitoba, the book emerged out of over a 10-year-long period of class discussions, listening events, and public dialogues between urban and rural farmers in Manitoba. The book surfaces out of these various initiatives producing germinating conversations centred around reconciliation, food production, and ecological crisis. With over 30 participants of both rural and urban contexts, the book attempts to mirror the kind of dialogue, and most importantly, the kind of listening that is required for real conversations to take place.

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.

Readers of CMU's The Blazer magazine often say they flip right to the Alumni News section before reading anything else. Unfortunately, the past two issues of The Blazer were not able to include alumni news, as the arrival of COVID-19 resulted in shorter issues and different content.

This fall, CMU has launched a partnership with REES (Respect, Educate, Empower Survivors), a new online platform for reporting sexual violence on campuses.
Eleven universities and colleges, all the post-secondary institutions in Manitoba except for the University of Manitoba, have committed to signing on to the initiative in 2020 or 2021. Charlie Peronto, CMU's Director of Student Life, says CMU is excited to partner with these other educational institutions and work collaboratively to break down the barriers to reporting sexual violence.
