Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, has seen major increases in enrolment this year, including more students from China. All the new students have been very enthusiastic about learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

According to a recent report by Dr Craig Pearson, Executive Vice President, MUM welcomed 95 new students in its spring enrolment this year, 78 undergraduates and 17 graduate students. 'Usually spring enrolment is smaller than standard fall enrolment,' he said, 'but this year it was just as large.' Last year, the number of students enrolling in spring was 79. During the last five to six years, the overall enrolment at the university has doubled.

Among the new students were about 15 from China, thanks to two new collaborations formed with institutions in that country. Based on these new partnerships, Dr Pearson expects that 100 more Chinese students will be enrolling in fall 2011. During the last 10 years of collaboration with China, several hundred Chinese students have graduated from MUM, but the rate of enrolment will now be expanding.

New students who enrolled at MUM this spring are already experiencing the benefits of twice-daily Transcendental Meditation practice. Dr Pearson has had the opportunity to teach several of these students, and reported that they are experiencing distinct increases in quality of life.

The increasing enrolment is one of many developments demonstrating the university's progress in fulfilling the vision of its Founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—to establish a major Consciousness-Based Education university in the US, Dr Pearson concluded.
