Marian University to Sponsor a Workplace Bullying Prevention and Awareness Seminar

Chris Lytle

Marian’s Adult Programs (MAP) at Marian University recently announced a workplace bullying seminar to be held at the Marian University Theatre on August 12, 2015. This is a free event and open to the public. The topic—workplace bullying and prevention—is applicable to employees at any level including managers, supervisors, human resources personnel, and business owners. It is scheduled for 6-8 p.m., with registration beginning at 5:30 p.m.

This “Work Shouldn’t Hurt” seminar is the result of a collaborative effort between The Chris Lytle Foundation and the students and faculty of MAP’s current Meeting and Event Planning concentration. Classes within this concentration, as well as 31 other courses in MAP, are partnered with local businesses or non-profits to provide creative solutions for actual business challenges. MAP students have worked with organizations like Indy Parks, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Indy Eleven, and Broad Ripple Village Association...read more

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.

Head Volleyball Coach Selected for AVCA 2014 Thirty Under 30 Award

by Katie Bradley | Mar 19, 2014

The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has named Ashlee Pritchard, Marian University head volleyball coach, a 2014 Thirty Under 30 award recipient for her passion and dedication to coaching.

“I want to be able to give back to the sport and help train young women in hopes that they will have the same love. But more importantly, a person can learn so much about life through athletics. The goal of any of my programs is that my athletes can take the lessons that they have learned on the court and apply them off the court, to be the best person they can be,” said Pritchard.   

This fall, Pritchard will enter her third season at Marian University. In her second season, Pritchard led the Knights to an 18-11 record.  Prior to coming to Marian University in 2012, she was the assistant volleyball coach at Taylor University (2009-12), where she also served as assistant director of athletics for event management.
