Capital Campaign

We’ve come a long way and accomplished a great deal together!

MIU is strong.

MIU is strong, stronger than ever before. Online enrollment is skyrocketing. And perhaps most exciting, the majority of our students are choosing Maharishi’s own unique knowledge as their field of study.

The Higher Learning Commission’s ten-year accreditation report was glowing… ComPro is resurging… COVID is receding… We are on a roll.

Let us celebrate this success and momentum by beautifying and upgrading our campus:

The new Wege Center for the Arts is a shining jewel that is ready for its final, dramatic uplift.

Our library, the last Parsons College legacy building, is due for a complete transformation.

Robert Keith Wallace Drive, MIU’s main boulevard, has not been repaved since Keith, our Founding President, was a lad.

And our Online programs, which are driving our record expansion, would explode with some extra marketing fuel. And there’s more…

So please enjoy this presentation, and see how and where you might help!

Great news for donors

For 2021, the federal government is incentivizing charitable giving. The “Consolidated Appropriations Act” removes the limitation on cash contributions to nonprofits. In other words, this year, 100% of your gift to MIU can be used as a tax deduction. Please keep this in mind as you browse these pages.

Flagship Project

The Wege Center for the Arts

After fifty years of dependable service, this original Parsons College building has been reimagined and recreated to reflect the highest ideals of the arts. An enormous transformation has been achieved! Now, the finishing touches lie before us.

Other Projects

01

Arts Programs Expansion

Now that our Arts programs have a world-class home in The Wege Center for the Arts, we want to elevate these programs to much greater prominence at the national level.

02

Support our Massive Online Expansion

MIU’s exponential growth in enrollment over the past four years has been fueled by the booming demand for our online courses… To ride this wave, we need to double our online course offering over the next two years.

03

Faculty Development

Support faculty presentations, conference attendance, distinguished visitors, and groundbreaking research.

04

The Library, Science Wing and Spayde Theater

Our Library, built in the 1960s, needs a total transformation!… Including the Science Wing to provide expansion space for Sustainable Regenerative Living and our other growing departments—as well as Spayde Theater

05

Faculty and Administrator Family Apartments

We want our faculty and key administrators to live on campus… But many of our housing accommodations, including our “Frats,” are in need of repair and renovation.

06

Grace Ananda Recreation Center

Through generous donor support, the Grace Ananda Recreation Center has been transformed… Now let’s finish the job by removing the final vestiges of wear and tear.

07

Robert Keith Wallace Drive

Help us restore our Founding President’s boulevard to the dignity that his life and achievements deserve!

08

Repave Sidewalks of Guest & Conference Center and Visitors Center

Conference Center visitors are forced to traverse weather-beaten, original Parsons College sidewalks. For safety and aesthetics, it is high time for repaving!

09

Sports Complex

The swimming pool is a favorite hangout for all during the hot summer months. Repairs are needed if it is to continue to operate. Our Fieldhouse, which is now closed until a new roof is installed, needs to be restored.

10

Golden Dome Air Quality

Let us greatly enhance the air conditioning and air purification systems in both of our Golden Domes to increase the comfort and enrich the experience of our precious Sidha peace-makers.

We have indeed come a long way

As we prepare to celebrate our 50-year Golden Anniversary, now is the time—in these next six months—to make a huge impact on our MIU Campus and our academic programs.

Let’s begin these next fifty years on a tidal wave of progress! Many of you have been with us since the very beginning, and some for just these last few years. Through your deep commitment and unwavering support, we can all truly feel we’ve done justice to the knowledge and to Maharishi’s founding vision. Yet, there is clearly more to do! So, let’s accomplish everything possible before our Golden Jubilee!

Please consider the opportunities shown here. There are many Legacy naming opportunities available. There is no time like the present. Strike now while the iron is hot!
