Although MUM is situated in rural Iowa, the school has a highly diverse population, both racially and culturally. MUM has long had an international focus, and therefore when we say we have people of color at MUM, we mean all colors, and many countries and many ages and experience levels as well. In addition, MUM is committed to and engaged in providing a Safe Zone for all members of the LGBT community.

This creates a rich classroom and living environment where, as a MUM student, you will make friends from all over the world who embody a broad range of cultural and personal perspectives.

Everyone here benefits from the shared experience of self-development, an integral part of MUM's Consciousness-Based Education environment. No matter what background you come from, you'll enjoy a great feeling of commonality, trust, and connection that comes from the most basic field of one's own consciousness, which everyone at MUM is daily both experiencing and cultivating.

So, we are all about diversity but there is a lot of underlying unity as well. MUM is an example of unity in diversity. Put another way, uni-versity ... in more ways than one!
What Students Are Saying    

"My experience at MUM has been one of tremendous personal growth and expansion. Having the opportunity to put emphasis on my spiritual development and further my education at the same time has been priceless. It is extremely rare to find that kind of support in an educational environment. In addition, I have made friends from all over the U.S. and around the world. I now truly understand that I am a part of the global family, and I consider Fairfield as my home base. No matter where I go I will be forever be connected to this community and the people I have met here and grown to love." Janet M.

"MUM is great place to be surrounded by like-minded people. No matter where you are in your life path, if you want to grow consciously and rapidly, this is one of the best places for that. I have enjoyed my time at MUM and wouldn't trade my experience here for the world." Tisha P.
