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:

Canadian Mennonite University, Menno Simons College

Our campus at the University of Winnipeg offers three and four year undergraduate degrees in Conflict Resolution Studies and International Development Studies.

Canadian Mennonite University, Shaftesbury Campus

We offer a wide range of arts and humanities degree programs all committed to excellence in peace and justice. CMU offers three and four year degrees in Peace and Conflict Transformation Studies and in International Development Studies.

Peace Research: The Canadian Journal of Peace and Conflict Studies
