Franciscan Pilgrims' Progress

Pilgrims - Susan Jennifer Ellen

Five days into our time in Assisi, the pilgrims from Marian University have all experienced in new ways what our Franciscan sponsorship values mean—for us as individuals and for the Marian community.

Prayer has been a constant for us. Daily Eucharist—whether in small chapels, large basilicas or our hotel--has become the centering experience of our journey. More than half of us are not Catholic, but this most significant of all Catholic rituals has embraced all and engaged us in the formation of a community of individuals renewed in our commitment to the mission of Marian University—to be a great Catholic university dedicated to excellent teaching and learning in the Franciscan and liberal arts tradition.

Reverence for the dignity of every individual stands out as the first, and perhaps most treasured, Franciscan value. Meeting Francis and Clare as we have done—intimately and in amazing detail—has shown us how different they were from each other and from us. But we have also witnessed how much they cared for each other and for others, especially the poor and the sick, the outcast and the vulnerable. Through their eyes we see that every man and woman is made in God’s image, a wonder to behold, no matter how different from us. Marian’s commitment to serve a diverse student body has been reaffirmed as an incredibly important feature of who we are and what we stand for as a Catholic Franciscan community...read more

The Richard G. Lugar Franciscan Center for Global Studies presents:

"The Challenges to American Foreign Policy"

American Foreign Policy and Global Leadership in an Age of Partisan Division: A Three-Part Series

Lee H. Hamilton is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University, a non-partisan educational institution seeking to improve the public’s understanding of Congress and to inspire young people and adults to take an active part in revitalizing representative government in America. Established in 1999, the Center developed out of Hamilton’s recognition during his 34 years in the United States House of Representatives (representing Indiana’s 9th District, 1965-99) that the public should be more familiar with Congress’ strengths and weaknesses, its role in our system of government, and its impact on the lives of ordinary people every day.

While in Congress, Hamilton’s chairmanships included the Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran. He also was chairman of the Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress and worked to promote integrity and efficiency in the institution. Hamilton was also a primary draftsman of several House ethics reforms.

Hamilton remains at the center of efforts to address some of our nation’s highest-profile homeland security and foreign policy challenges. He is a member of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, the President’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, the CIA External Advisory Board, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Task Force on Preventing the Entry of Weapons of Mass Effect on American Soil.

At Indiana University, Hamilton is also a Professor of Practice in the School for Public and Environmental Affairs, is a Distinguished Scholar in the School of Global and International Studies, and serves as Co-Chair for IU’s International Engagement Advisory Board.

Hamilton served as Vice Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, Co-Chair of the Iraq Study Group, and Co-Chair of the Independent Task Force on Immigration and America’s Future. Until recently, he served as Co-Chair of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future.

From 1999 through 2010, Hamilton was President of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., where scholars, policymakers, and business leaders engage in comprehensive and non-partisan dialogue on public policy issues.

Hamilton is a graduate of DePauw University and Indiana University School of Law. He is the author of three books: How Congress Works and Why You Should Care; Strengthening Congress; A Creative Tension – The Foreign Policy Roles of the President and Congress; and co-author of Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission and The Iraq Study Group Report. He writes twice-monthly commentaries about Congress and representative democracy.
