Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA holds its 2012 Commencement ceremonies on the MUM campus on Saturday, May 26.
This year's Commencement speaker is Candy Crowley, CNN's award-winning chief political correspondent and anchor of ''State of the Union with Candy Crowley,'' a political hour of newsmaker interviews and analysis of the week's most important issues.
In her role as chief political correspondent, Ms. Crowley covers a broad range of stories, including presidential, congressional and gubernatorial races and major legislative developments on Capitol Hill.
Since arriving at CNN from NBC in 1987, Ms. Crowley has won some of broadcasting's major awards: a Peabody, an Emmy, and a Gracie Allen Award.
Ms. Crowley has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique since 2008. Along with Dr. Mehmet Oz, she was a co-host of the David Lynch Foundation ''Change Begins Within'' benefit gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in 2010. She also hosted the 2011 launch for DLF's Operation Warrior Wellness in Washington, DC.
''She said she is 'very honored and excited' to be able to speak at our 2012 commencement ceremony,'' said MUM executive vice-president Craig Pearson.
Ms. Crowley will be attending many of the Commencement events, but has to return immediately to Washington, DC after graduation in order to anchor her national political talk show on Sunday morning.
The entire Fairfield community is being invited to attend Saturday's ceremonies at 1:00 pm in the golden dome on the MUM campus.
A total of 275 degrees will be given to 268 graduating students: 74 degrees for 67 undergraduates, including 7 double majors, and 201 graduate degrees, for 196 Master's and 5 Ph.D. degrees.
Florence Lillian Nickerson is this year's Salutatorian, and the Valedictorian is Patrik Nils-Olof Siljestam.
The University of Iowa Faculty Brass Quintet will play the music for the Graduation Processional.
