CMU raises more than $8 million in CONNECT Campaign

January 30, 2013

Canadian Mennonite University's board of governors has decided to move forward with plans for building the CMU Library & Learning Commons and Bridge this year -- a decision prompted partly by positive momentum in fundraising that saw donations and pledges increase from about $5.4 million in October 2012 to $8.4 million as of January 1, 2013. The CONNECT Campaign will support the construction of the Library & Learning Commons at the heart of CMU's Shaftesbury campus in south Winnipeg. The project includes an integrated book and resource centre, café, and a pedestrian bridge to connect the library to CMU's south side campus. Next steps in the project are for architects to complete final drawings by March 1. CMU News Release
