The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this article about Maharishi University of Management* student Niloofar Mofrad.

Niloofar grew up in Iran and learned Transcendental Meditation at the age of 15. She soon found out about Maharishi University of Management in the USA, and became fascinated with the idea of attending a school where students focus on the growth of their consciousness along with their studies.

During her studies in sustainable living, Niloofar became interested in the philosophy of sustainability and its implications for ecological and social transformation. To combine that with her interest in Maharishi Vedic Science, she decided to graduate with an individualized major in sustainability and consciousness.

In addition, last year she took a special ''semester in the gap'' with the Mother Divine Program,** incorporating research in consciousness into her studies.

''Niloofar is a deep thinker,' said John Collins, director of the individualized major program at MUM. ''She has had the great insight that consciousness is primary in all areas of life, and that it contains the critical solutions for creating a sustainable world.''
