CMU’s Menno Simons downsizes programming, moves out of downtown headquarters


Canadian Mennonite University’s Menno Simons College–which offers interdisciplinary education exploring conflict, poverty, and inequality–will be downsizing its programming and moving out of its current headquarters in downtown Winnipeg. The satellite campus was run in collaboration with the University of Winnipeg, and college’s physical presence will be limited to the UWinnipeg Riddell Hall basement. The move comes in response to a drop in admissions and a growing demand for e-learning. As of June 30th, the only option available for incoming students will be a condensed, three-year version of the conflict resolution degree; most of the courses for this program will be offered online. CMU will retain all instructors, who will shift to teaching CMU’s peace-building master’s program, among other subjects.
