A message from President Dr. Cheryl Pauls
Greetings from CMU. I write to let you know what's been happening with the joint CMU/MB Seminary program since the time that MB Seminary informed CMU that for reasons of financial exigency MBS had decided to withdraw from the Affiliation Agreement between MB Seminary and CMU on May 31, 2021. Over the past year, a new four-way partnership has formed in order to rebuild a Mennonite Brethren Graduate Theological Education track (MB GTE Track) at CMU. This new partnership makes it possible for you to continue your studies with distinct MB dimensions, and the parchment you receive at graduation will be conferred jointly by CMU and MB Seminary. I see this new arrangement as a very good thing, and I'm deeply encouraged to be able to sustain the MB track at CMU in service of ministry education that relates very directly to the MB Church.

Theme: Virtues for the Pandemic
This month on Sunday@CMU, we are rebroadcasting a series of meditations from Delmar Epp, Associate Professor of Psychology at CMU. Delmar has taught at CMU since 2000, including courses in child development, social psychology, and the psychology of motivation. Throughout this series, he uses the lens of positive psychology to explore how we can survive, and even thrive, during difficult times.

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 team behind Li Keur, Riel's Heart of the North launched an innovative Indigenous language database this spring.
Li Keur is a new dramatic musical work co-created by Métis poet and scholar Dr. Suzanne Steele, who wrote the libretto, and CMU Adjunct Professor of Music Neil Weisensel, who composed the music alongside Métis fiddler Alex Kusturok. It is a reimagining of Louis Riel's "missing" years from 1870–72 and the strong women that surrounded him.
