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.

Marian University to Host 18th Annual Midwest Cycling Classic

by Katie Bradley | Apr 02, 2014

On Saturday, April 19, Marian University will host the 18th annual Midwest Cycling Classic, one of the biggest criterium races of the collegiate season. Collegiate races will begin at 8 a.m. and continue throughout the day. Citizen races for Indianapolis and the regional cycling community will begin at 1 p.m.

The course is approximately 2.5 miles (4km) long and starts and finishes at the Indy Cycloplex, home of the Major Taylor Velodrome. For a complete list of the day’s events, visit the USA Cycling website.

The Classic is the kickoff to the 2014 season at the Indy Cycloplex, which will include more than 20 race days on the track and USA Cycling's Collegiate Track National Championship, BMX racing, and cyclocross events in the fall.

For the second year, Marian University is partnering with the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure for this event. Come out to the Indy Cycloplex and cheer on our 25-time national championship cycling team! Food trucks and Sun King Beer will be on site for the day. 

About the Indy Cycloplex

Formerly known as the Lake Sullivan Sports Complex, the Indy Cycloplex 
came under the management of Marian University in a partnership with the City of Indianapolis starting in April 2011. With support from Mayor Greg Ballard and the Indianapolis City County Council, the university is leading the effort for a new era for this historic city park, the home of the Major Taylor Velodrome and a newly-renovated BMX track. 

Many opportunities exist to promote health and fitness to residents of all ages, as well as to create a nationally recognized competitive cycling facility that can
host races and events in five cycling disciplines, as well as engage the community in unique ways. To learn more, visit the Indy Cycloplex website
