At UMLAC we adhere to a series of guiding principles which give shape to all our academic programs and activities. These principles are:
Holistic, relevant education for a successful life — not just a career — to ensure our happiness and to make real contributions in the world
The development of consciousness through the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique is a core value of the University and an integral component of the academic program
Self-exploration, higher consciousness, spirituality, and inner peace through the Transcendental Meditation technique.
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)
Natural health, yoga asanas, and fitness programs for balance in body and mind — and organic vegetarian meals
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
