Here’s some of what the Princeton Review highlighted about sustainability at Maharishi University of Management:
You may not have heard of the Maharishi University of Management before now, but that won’t be the case for long. That’s because construction is underway on campus to erect a facility described by the Associated Press as “the ultimate green building.” The building, which will house Maharishi’s Sustainable Living program, will generate its own electricity, heating, cooling, water, and manage its own waste disposal needs. It’s a perfect complement to the university’s four-year bachelor of science in Sustainable Living.
Additionally, MUM filed an ambitious climate action plan to reduce carbon emissions and target 100 percent of electricity used on campus from renewable sources by 2012. The university’s three year Prairie Restoration Project is repurposing 14 acres of demolition sites on campus and restoring them to native prairie.
