  1. Dec. 17, 2018Formalized Partnership will Deepen Connections in Pursuit of PeacePaul Heidebrecht, John Head, Rick Cober Bauman, and Marcus Shantz pose with signed Memorandum of Understanding

    On December 17, Conrad Grebel University College (Grebel) and Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) formalized their partnership to advance peace through the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement (CPA) by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.

    The CPA is home to peace-oriented innovators and established organizations from Waterloo region’s vibrant peacebuilding ecosystem. Over the past four years, the CPA has enabled Grebel and MCC to partner in new ways through, for example, consultations, conferences, and gallery exhibits. This agreement builds on that foundation by deepening this unique partnership over the next three years.
