The home of Consciousness-Based Education.
Introduction
We provide education that develops students personally and professionally.

We offer degree programs to the PhD level in the arts, sciences, business & humanities.

We were founded in 1971 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to fulfill the highest ideals of education. Foremost among these ideals is developing the full potential of consciousness in every student — to help students develop the ability to think and act in accord with the laws of nature and to live fulfilled and successful lives. This fulfills the long-sought goal of education: to produce fully developed individuals, citizens who can fulfill their own aspirations while promoting all good in society.

Consciousness-Based education
Holistic, relevant education for a successful life — not just a career — to ensure our happiness and to make real contributions in the world

• Meditation and spiritual growth
Self-exploration, higher consciousness, spirituality, and inner peace through the Transcendental Meditation technique

• Positive, supportive community
Professors who really care for their students, and a nourishing environment without the stress and negativity typical of college (that’s why many of us transfer from other colleges)

• Healthy lifestyle
Natural health, yoga asanas, and fitness programs for balance in body and mind — and organic vegetarian meals

• Sustainability
Commitment to achieving inner and outer sustainability for ourselves and the world
We support a progressive campus culture where alcohol, drugs, and tobacco are prohibited, and where we can develop our full potential.
