Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) in Winnipeg has announced Connect, an $11 million capital expansion. Fundraising is already underway, and construction will begin in 2013. The project will feature a new Library and Learning Commons, including meeting rooms, computer enhancements, a bookstore and a café.
The project will also include a pedestrian bridge over Grant Avenue, connecting two parts of the university campus. CMU was formed by the merger of three Mennonite colleges in 2000 and currently has about 1700 students. A new Science Laboratory was completed in 2010, and donor funding of $6.5 to $7.5 million was announced in 2011 to establish the CMU Redekop School of Business.
