Morad Malekghassemi, PhD student from Tehran, Iran, plans to promote the benefits of cultural diversity as the new cultural committee president of the Global Student Council at Maharishi University of Management.

Morad always wanted to do humanitarian work, so he joined the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. His first assignment was in Turkey working with refugees from more than 23 countries. After earning an MS degree in human resource management from Oxford Brookes University, UK, he was re-deployed by the UN to Iran where he helped resettle hundreds of Afghan refugees.

In 2011, to manage his stress while working in a Tunisian refugee camp under highly unsafe circumstances, Morad started practicing yoga and meditation. Then he found MUM on the Internet and decided to pursue a PhD in Management.

''I have gained a lot more clarity from practicing Transcendental Meditation,'' said Morad. ''Being at MUM allows me to be more appreciative and calmer. My teachers here promote a greater level of cooperation, coherence, and growth. I can feel a great degree of connectedness which brings all of us together as a family.''
