Chas Zachar, a native of Arizona, came to Maharishi University of Management (MUM) because he became interested in learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.

He decided to follow in his father's footsteps to become a teacher. ''I had a great experience working with the education professors here,'' said Chas. ''In my second education class, I was already leading lessons at Maharishi School.''

Chas is graduating this June with an undergraduate degree in education and a certification in special education. ''My biggest takeaway was Consciousness-Based education, so I try to utilize the universal principles of Consciousness-Based education whenever I can,'' he said.

Chas was one of 10 percent of applicants accepted to Teach For America (TFA), a national program that recruits teachers to work in underserved areas, and will teach high school this fall in Kona, Hawaii. He says that people at TFA are intrigued by MUM and its unique approach to education. ''The cutting-edge principles TFA is talking about are part of Consciousness-Based education, and have been here the whole time.''
