CMU launches new program
Canadian Mennonite University officially launched its communications and media program Apr. 20 with a celebration honouring Elmer Hildebrand (pictured, middle with his wife Hilda and CMU president Gerald Gerbrandt) of Golden West Broadcasting, whose $300,000 pledge made the program possible. Too often newsrooms lack writers and reporters who have a solid spiritual grounding, Hildebrand said. CMU Communications and Media students will take courses in biblical and theological studies alongside communications requirements. David Balzer and Donald Benham are program faculty.
