CMU’s Peacebuilding Initiatives

CMU’s Canadian School of Peacebuilding comes out of a long history, identity, practice and ethos of peacebuilding. Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) is a chartered Christian liberal arts university in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Drawing on a 480 year tradition of Anabaptist-Mennonite peace practice, and over 60 years of teaching peace and conflict studies, CMU’s programs in peace and conflict are some of the oldest and largest in the field. Some of our main initiatives in peace and conflict include:
