THE MAHARISHI UNIVERSITY OF MANAGEMENT

IN 1973, The Mahrishi Yogi purchased the former Parsons College and began transforming it into a rather unique school of higher education. The university is accredited through the Ph.D. level, and it offers "consciousness-based education" that includes use of the Transcendental Meditation method.

Fairfield is located in southeast Iowa on highway 34. It is a typical small farming community in Iowa, except for the unusual university there.
