On campus, in our community and around the world, EMU offers an outstanding Christian liberal arts education. Nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, our vibrant learning community offers a unique blend of academics, based on faith exploration, deepening of personal character and core values like peacebuilding and service to others, and one of the best cross-cultural programs on any campus.
Here you'll meet professors who know your names, who challenge you to grow in your faith in a caring community, to broaden your worldview through our unique cross-cultural study program's home stays and off-the-beaten-path maps.
EMU was one of the first colleges to require cross-cultural study for all students more than three decades ago. Now we have one of the strongest cross-cultural study programs available.
EMU cross-cultural is more than study abroad. Its a unique chance to change your outlook and grow in your faith. Its an opportunity to learn about yourself and the broader world, developing character and values while building relationships.
At EMU, we were "green" long before green became trendy. Sustainable and simple living is at the core of many Mennonites' faith, and it's always been a strong part of the EMU community.
With energy issues on everyone's mind, we're looking more closely than ever at ways to 'walk humbly' on God's earth.
CJP was one of the first universities to offer a Masters in the conflict and peacebuilding field. CJP also launched the first peacebuilding institute offering intensive professional development and graduate-level courses. Our Summer Peacebuilding Institute has become a model for other peacebuilding institutions around the world.
CJP is the recognized leader among academic peacebuilding institutions in integrating academic study and practice and houses the only Practice and Training Institute within a graduate peace and conflict studies program.
