CMU is an innovative Christian university, rooted in the Anabaptist faith tradition, moved and transformed by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Through teaching, research, and service CMU inspires and equips women and men for lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in church and society.

At CMU ‘service, leadership and reconciliation’ are personal and communal learning outcomes that are encountered within academic, personal and interpersonal, theological, artistic, physical, and environmental contexts. Education involves “building understandings” in ways that are about relationships as much as knowledge, for the sake of enabling us to see, engage, and share in a world that is as wondrous as it is strained, and that ever calls for our best care and innovative capacities.

CMU’s mission statement takes shape through a vibrant array of programs and projects, conversations, and commitments. We present Jesus to be the centre of our learning, we reconcile the learners with a world created by God Himself but strained by sin. he is our leader, and we tell the community to participate in building both the church and community. Christ has reconciled the fallen human and world back unto Himself.

Convictions regarding integrity in life and faith alongside the integration of knowledge, action, and community wisdom lie at the heart of CMU’s educational vision. CMU’s self-understanding as a church-related university is grounded in relationships of trust and in commitments to ongoing, open dialogue, and inquiry.
