On the 40th anniversary of the founding of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, on 12 September 2011, messages of congratulations were received from a number of government leaders.

A message of warm appreciation came from Jim Leach,* who was a 30-year member of the United States Congress, representing the congressional district in the state of Iowa in which the University's campus in Fairfield is located.

Mr Leach's message follows:

''As a member of Congress I was privileged to represent Maharishi University of Management for over half of its existence.

''I watched with great pleasure as its reputation grew and as the city of Fairfield became increasingly dynamic, diverse and successful, infused with people connected to the University's programs.

''I've always been impressed with the thoughtfulness and dedication of people associated with the University, and was honored to be the Commencement speaker some 25 years ago.

''MUM has carved out a unique niche in American education that offers students a caring window into learning. I salute the University on its 40th anniversary and look forward to seeing what this innovative institution will accomplish in the years to come.''

Global Good News will feature more congratulatory messages from government leaders on the 40th anniversary of Maharishi University of Management, as well as highlights of the anniversary celebration on 12 September.

* Mr Leach is currently Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities in the United States, appointed by President Obama.
