Service and Justice

Freshman Day of Service 2008


Are you an active person who wants to connect with others, serve your community, make new friends and expand your perspective? Then you might want to check out STARR (Students Taking Active Reflective Roles). Every Friday afternoon, Marian University students gather to serve and reflect upon that service to the greater Indianapolis community. Last semester, over 100 students served over 1000 hours!

Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break

Marian University provides opportunities for students to consider an “alternative” to the beach-bound spring break.  Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an intensive, student-led team formation process. Each spring, students travel to destinations such as New Mexico, Appalachia, Chicago, New York, and Nicaragua to open the eyes of students to the world’s needs and empower them to be agents of social change.

Freshman Day of Service

Marian in Action

Marian in Action (MIA) offers reflective weekend service opportunities, including “Saints in the Streets” neighborhood clean-up, Martin Luther King, Jr. day of service, a spring trip to Franciscan-operated Michaela Farm in Oldenburg, Indiana, and Knights Called to Serve. All service at Marian University includes reflection on our Franciscan heritage and is geared to develop students who will transform the world.

March For Life

Social Justice

Based on our scripture mandate to “see that justice is done,” Micah, 6:8 along with our Franciscan sponsorship values, social justice implications are woven into all of our service programs and most especially in new student orientation. It is our intention to educate our students of the needs in the world and the gospel call to be a voice for sustaining and empowering change.
