Alcohol and Drug Use    

Maharishi University of Management supports maximum growth of our students and the development of total brain functioning. Therefore, we are seriously committed to having a drug-free and alcohol-free campus as well as substance-free students, whether on or off campus. Our stringent policy regarding alcohol and non-prescribed drug use reflects this commitment.

Consciousness-based education is for those who wish to grow in higher states of consciousness, and the use of alcohol and drugs impedes that progress. The educational system offered at MUM is designed to unfold the infinite potential of mind, body, and behavior by completely natural means. The influence of drugs and alcohol is not nourishing to our University community. Therefore, anyone who uses these substances, promotes the use of these substances, makes them available to others, or is found in the presence of these substances, in violation of our Code of Student Behavior and/or the law, is subject to disciplinary consequences.

Note: Students taking any prescribed medications should continue until their health care provider recommends otherwise.

Students seeking assistance with substance abuse issues are strongly encourage to visit privately with the Director of our Student Support Services, Campus Nurse, or any other member of our Student Life team. We will direct you to the appropriate resources. For a listing of local resources, please go here.

What these policies mean to your student    
You may have read some or all of this section, but what these policies mean in actual practice is that, At MUM, your son or daughter experiences a university environment unlike many other schools. When unhealthy practices are not the norm, healthy behaviors predominate. Being around other students who do not relish getting drunk or drugged up on the weekend means that your student is not exposed to peer pressure or even social situations where drinking and drug use are commonplace. 

The positive side of all this is that weekends are fun, but not inebriated; creative and productive, not exhausting and dulling. Good study and life habits thrive in such an environment.
