The Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) in Winnipeg is launching a major new university capital project.
It will enhance the school's infrastructure for delivering quality post-secondary education.
Two years ago, the University celebrated completion of another capital project - a new CMU Science Laboratory on the University’s Shaftesbury campus. In the fall of last year, CMU announced donor funding of $6.5-to $7.5-million to establish its CMU Redekop School of Business.
The University will build a new Library and Learning Commons, along with a pedestrian bridge linking both sides of CMU’s Shaftesbury campus. The new Commons facility will feature study carrels, worktables, Small group rooms, New computer, wireless, and peripheral technologies and a seminar room.
Construction is expected to start in 2013.
CMU has over 1,700 students at its Shaftesbury Campus, at Menno Simons College in downtown Winnipeg, and enrolled through its Outtatown discipleship program.
