John Eicher has been invited to participate in a three-year collaborative project titled "Seven Points on Earth", examining the relationship between Mennonite communities and the land in seven locations around the world. The project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Noaquia Callahan and Gabriel Baker have both received Fellowships from the Obermann Graduate Institute on Engagement and the Academy.

Two members have also recently published some scholarship:
