Graduation Ceremony

Dear friend,

I am delighted to invite you to the first annual Graduation Ceremony and Gala for the IAM University of the Heart, August 14th, 2014!

Since the IAM University of the Heart was created in 2010 (by IAM Heart co-founders Puran and Susanna Bair) we have been anticipating this wonderful event.

Our Inaugural Class includes the following students listed alphabetically by last name):


Come and join us to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2014 at the Graduation Ceremony, August 14th, 10 am to 1 pm, (free and open to the public).

We also invite you to Graduation Gala, August 14th, 7 pm. Because the Graduation Gala has limited space, we encourage you to register.

We appreciate any donation that you'd like to make, which will go toward the IAM-U Financial Aid Fund.

Your support helps us build the University of the Heart Endowment and Financial Aid fund, ensuring the future of IAM-U, and helping us continue to admit only the best candidates for our school, regardless of their ability to pay. Thank you so much for your support!

If you know you are interested in being part of IAM-U, I encourage you to apply. We are already receiving many queries about the program, and we've already gotten some great applications for the Class of 2016, which begins with the Embarkation, August 11-13.

Please follow your heart. Apply even if you don't know how you'll find the time or money to do this program. The world often sends the message that the longing of your heart is impractical. Far from it: following your heart is the most practical thing you can do.

Please do not apply if you're not sure about the program, or if you do not feel a strong desire to be part of the University of the Heart. The program is a big commitment, and it will change your life. If you think it may be for you, but you'd like more information, call the IAM University of the Heart office at (520) 299-2170, and we'd be happy to discuss the details. This is not something to just jump into, but if you truly long for it, then you must leap!

Over the last four years we have given out over $80,000 in financial aid. Those who would like to be considered for Financial Aid, please click here.

Thank you again for your support of the IAM University of the Heart.

yours in the Heart of All,

Dr. Asatar Bair
President of the IAM University of the Heart
