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 Named a Top Workplace by the Indianapolis Star

by Katie Bradley | Apr 30, 2014

Marian University has been named one of Central Indiana’s Top Workplaces, as determined by a survey commissioned by The Indianapolis Star.

“We are honored to be recognized among Indianapolis’ Top Workplaces,” President Daniel J. Elsener said. “I’ve long realized that we are fortunate to have such dedicated and talented faculty and staff. It is wonderful to know that they are as happy with Marian University as we are with them.”

The rankings are based solely on employee survey responses. And with a nearly 80 percent response rate from employees, Marian University had one of the highest response rates of any participating company. 

Employers compete for the award in three categories based on the number of employees. Marian University was ranked #25 among Central Indiana’s mid-sized companies. This is the first year Marian University has competed for the award.

Top Workplaces was established by WorkplaceDynamics in 2006. The program is based on the belief that the most successful companies are the ones that employees believe in. The program recognizes employers on 30 regional lists and one national list. Evaluations for the list are based solely on employee opinions, which are gathered through the Workplace Dynamics employee survey.
