A radically different approach to education

Consciousness-Based Education

Through Consciousness-Based Education, you’ll study the subjects you’re passionate about while embarking on a journey of self-discovery and inner growth. As your awareness expands, your ability to absorb knowledge and see the big picture improves, and you’ll be able to connect what you’re learning in a meaningful way to your own life.

The MIU Experience

Watch the video: MIU is radically different. It has a campus culture with heart

Many of our students transfer to MIU looking for a more meaningful and less stressful educational experience. With an open, diverse, and supportive campus community, Consciousness-Based education, the block system, and the Transcendental Meditation® technique as part of the curriculum, MIU is often the alternative they are looking for.

Is this place real?

People frequently ask us this question. Yes, it’s real – but nothing we say can take the place of experiencing MIU yourself. We invite you to visit us virtually to find out if MIU is a good fit for you.
