Graham Torpey grew up in Connecticut, USA, and attended Syracuse University in New York state. He received a bachelor's degree in economics and political philosophy in 2009. While at Syracuse, Graham went to Great Britain to study with faculty from the London School of Economics and the University of London. By the time he graduated, he was dissatisfied with the fragmented approach to economics he experienced and was looking for a more evolved perspective.
He heard about Maharishi University of Management and the Transcendental Meditation technique while traveling in Europe. In spring 2010, he attended an MUM Visitors Weekend. ''I met so many people who were so awake,'' said Graham. He became a student in fall 2010.
Graham enrolled in the part-time MBA internship program and worked as associate director of residential life; this year he is assistant dean of student life.
Graham feels that studying consciousness and sustainability at MUM has given him a more holistic understanding of economics. ''I now see the purpose of economics that is yet to be fully enlivened, wherein the discipline can be better utilized to create wealth and well-being for all living systems, including human beings,'' he said. ''I definitely want to work in this area of life, to be an instrument for achieving more enlightened systems.''
