CMU announces fall 2021 enrolment

Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) launches into the 2021-22 academic year with fall enrolment holding strong and steady. Preliminary results for all CMU programs indicate a student complement of 875 (full-time equivalent). This includes 615 FTE at the Shaftesbury main campus, and 260 FTE at the Menno Simons College campus.

At the main campus CMU has seen a one percent dip in overall student numbers, even as incoming international registration has begun to rebound from last year's pandemic impacts.

Seventy-three percent of CMU students are from across Manitoba, 13 percent from other regions of Canada, and 14 percent from five continents. Final enrolment figures will be confirmed in the upcoming weeks as registrations continue to be processed.

Ninety percent of CMU academic programming is currently offered in-person, with 10 percent of courses offered virtually. Students are excited for the return to an in-person learning environment and the opportunity to safely meet peers, both in and out of class.

"I'm heartened to see the joy and energy of students as they come together to start the year. The pandemic has been a difficult season for many and I'm encouraged by how ready students are to return to community." says CMU President Dr. Cheryl Pauls.

CMU continues to promote student health and wellbeing through a diverse range of initiatives, including personal support, creative expression, physical activity, and more.
