Students Joyfully Return to Campus

Students on Grebel Move-In Day

As families arrived for Conrad Grebel University College’s Move-In Day over the Labour Day weekend, joy was visible in student eyes, even as masks hid their smiles. With three waves of move-in times for new students during the day, there was space to safely welcome students, assure parents, and get everyone settled in dorm rooms.

Mennonite Heritage Week 2021

Quilt section

In 2019, Canada’s parliament designated the second week of September as Mennonite Heritage Week, granting special recognition to Mennonite resilience, cultural production, and peacemaking efforts. The designation encourages deeper public appreciation of Mennonite contributions to “building Canadian society.” This call comes alongside increasing acknowledgment among some Mennonites of all that past and current participation in nation-building has entailed - prominently, white settlers’ involvement in the state’s varied colonialist projects targeting Indigenous peoples. This year, we mark Mennonite Heritage Week by drawing attention to an upcoming conference, to be held at Conrad Grebel University College in May 2022, that invites reflection on these parts of Mennonite history, in Canada and in other contexts.
