University students express gratitude to donors, churches, and Manitoba government on tuition freedom day

Tuition Freedom Day celebrates the generosity of donors, churches, and the Manitoba Government in supporting education at Canadian Mennonite University.
Taking place November 24, 2014 at 11:30 AM in CMU’s Chapel, Tuition Freedom Day marks the end of the fiscal year paid for by student tuition, and the beginning of the year made possible by grants and donations from the Manitoba government, churches, and individual donors.

The day is “a valuable way for students to understand that the amount that they pay is a small portion of what it costs for their education for one year,” says Marilyn Peters Kliewer, Dean of Student Life.

Marla Langelotz, Lead Pastor at Sargent Mennonite Church; Dr. Paul Peters, recipient of a Blazer Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007 and previous CMU board chair will speak to students on behalf of this year’s donors.
