Marilynn Kulieke

Marilynn Kulieke is a long-time reader of The Urantia Book. She was introduced to the book in 1972 by her late husband, David, whose family had been involved in the Urantia project since the early 1930s. After joining the First Society for Readers of The Urantia Book in 1974, Marilynn became an active supporter of the dissemination of the book and its teachings. She and David served on its Governing Committee and hosted hundreds of study groups and events.

Over the years Marilynn has served on several boards of Urantia organizations. She served on the Urantia Book Fellowship Executive Committee for 18 years, chairing the international conference in 1987. She has worked on a number of education projects with her husband, including the Fellowship’s Summer Study Sessions and presentations, and she is proud to continue her work on the Teacher Education Program, a project that was especially important to David.

As a trustee of Urantia Foundation since 2007, she currently serves as Vice President. Additionally, she chairs the Translation Committee, and is a member of the Standard Reference Text, Education, and Publication committees. She said: “I am fascinated by the topic of service and the tremendous personal growth that can come about from each effort we make to love and serve others.”

Professionally, Marilynn received a doctorate in Educational Psychology from Northwestern University. Since then, her belief in the importance of education has led her to positions in educational research, evaluation, and school success initiatives throughout the United States. She currently is a partner in GAINS Education Group and consults with schools and districts needing support.

Marilynn lives in Lincolnshire, Illinois with her mischievous dog Bernie. Her three children and five grandchildren ranging in age from 4 to 19 live nearby. Watching them grow and change has been one of the most gratifying experiences of her life.
