In a press release dated Dec. 4, 2012, the International Metaphysical University (IMU) announced that a “complete and fresh study of the entire UFO phenomenon” will be facilitated through a new course on ufology taught by noted author and historian Richard Dolan. The course is described as a series of 12 lectures to cover topics including the history of UFOs, related political issues, philosophical and investigative problems, the science behind these phenomena and more.
The International Metaphysical University operates as a ministry (described as the “educational arm”) of the International Metaphysical Churches (IMC) based in West Virginia. According to their website, the IMC serves a spiritual community interested in exploring “psychic phenomena including mediumship, meditation, the presence of non-humans in the form of ghosts or other energies, UFOs or ETs and a wide variety of explorations into consciousness.”
The International Metaphysical University’s mission statement describes IMU’s goal of providing “an open-minded platform for the examination, exploration, and advancement of consciousness in an online educational environment.”
