The article features a group of distinguished faculty from Maharishi University of Management, who gave a variety of presentations and symposia at this year's annual conference of the Academy of Management, the oldest and largest scholarly management association, in San Antonio, Texas.

The theme of the conference—'West Meets East: Enlightening, Balancing, and Transcending'—was 'a wonderful indication of the growing appreciation for more profound systems of education and ways to develop managers for organizations,' said David DuBois, who helped organize symposia offered by the faculty.

The MUM faculty presentations contributed a profound level of knowledge on the conference theme, including the two symposia:

∙ 'Education for Enlightenment: The Implications of Consciousness for Managerial Development'
∙ 'Transcending and Peak Executive Performance: Management Insight from the East'

Also on the programme was a paper presented by Dr. Dennis Heaton, Dean of Distance Education and International Programs at MUM, titled 'Maharishi on Management: Transcending, Balancing, Enlightening, and Harmonizing'.

Dr Heaton was also a panelist in a workshop on sustainability in management education; and a presenter in a workshop on educating managers about integrity, along with Ph.D. student Ravi Subramaniam.

Other MUM faculty participating in the symposia were Dr Jane Schmidt-Wilk, Dr Scott Herriott, Vicki Alexander Herriott, Dr Fred Travis, and adjunct faculty Harald Harung.

The faculty's presentations this year—in three different divisions and in two all-academy themes—contributed to 'a huge step forward in the visibility of the University and our academic work', Dr. Schmidt-Wilk said.
