Students from all faculties can take a Grebel course in Music, Peace and Conflict Studies,Mennonite Studies, Sociology, History, and Religious Studies! Conrad Grebel is home to the University of Waterloo undergraduate departments for Music, Peace and Conflict Studies, and Mennonite Studies. Grebel professors are inviting and engaging, and you’ll often see them around Grebel ready to visit with students. The Milton Good Library is easily accessible from the residence hallway and is a bright place to study and research.
Back in the 1600s, small groups of people were popping up in Europe. They challenged injustice in society by taking care of each other (and their enemies) in a spirit of love and peace. They were inspired by the stories of Jesus and came to be known as Mennonites. At Grebel, we model ourselves after them. That means supporting you as you explore the purpose and meaning of life, as you learn to connect with others in healthy ways and as you practice good habits of service and care for all people and the earth. We have discovered that this all happens best when we bring the best of who we are together from all our different walks of life regardless of our religion, ethnicity or identity of any sort.
