Steve Fugate, former director of the Iowa Renewable Energy Association and an expert on biodiesel fuel, recently joined the staff of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, to manage the campus biodiesel project and to help implement a plan to use massive solar arrays to provide all the electricity on campus.

Mr. Fugate said that biodiesel fuel is a high priority of the campus sustainability initiative,* because it both saves money and helps the environment. The campus project entails taking used vegetable oil from the Argiro Student Center kitchen and from The Raj Maharishi Ayurveda Health Spa in neighboring Maharishi Vedic City and turning it into environmentally beneficial transportation fuel used in campus buses and faculty and student automobiles.

''It's not only a community resource development opportunity but also a great teachable moment,'' Mr. Fugate said. ''It shows students we can affect situations we care about, such as reducing imported oil by using a non-petroleum fuel.''

Global Good News comment:

An important component of sustainability initiatives at MUM are the BS in Sustainable Living and MBA in Sustainable Business degree programmes. Among many special features these programmes focus on developing inner sustainability through Consciousness-Based education and the Transcendental Meditation technique to 'expand students' awareness and help them realign to act in harmony with nature'.
