MUM alumna Lani Aulicino

A case study written last fall by Maharishi University of Management* MBA student Lani Aulicino in a course on Managing Change for Sustainability has won an international award.

She was one of 17 winners of Flourish Prizes out of 503 submissions to AIM2Flourish, a United Nations-supported global learning initiative in which students write about positive business innovations. The competition is based around 17 sustainable development goals identified by the UN, with one winner related to each goal.

Lani's case study was related to goal #15, Life on Land, and described the work and mission of Soil Technologies Corporation (located in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, home of Maharishi University of Management), which uses the intelligence of microorganisms to provide sustainable eco-agricultural alternatives to chemical inputs.

She wrote the case study, titled ''Applied Biological Wisdom: Regenerative Agricultural Solutions,'' in a class taught by Dennis Heaton, as part of MUM's MBA in Sustainable Business.

''I chose Soil Tech because I saw an opportunity to shed some light on a business I feel is providing positive alternative solutions to otherwise unintentionally harmful practices, right here in our small, rural community of Fairfield,'' Lani said. ''I'm glad it won, because I'm sure there are a lot of individuals and companies who could benefit from their work.''

Lani received her BA in business administration from MUM in 2012 along with an Outstanding Student Award. Prior to transferring to MUM, she served as 2nd chair of the Green Committee at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, by building gardens and educating the community about GMOs.

She has a passion for all areas of sustainability and has taken numerous sustainable living classes at MUM. She also worked as event coordinator for the Department of Sustainable Living in 2011.

Lani currently works as legacy giving officer at MUM's Development Office. In addition, she serves on the board of Fairfield's Sustainable Living Coalition and has recently completed an eight-month leadership program with the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce.
