Alternative Break Inspires Ministry, Service

Chris Lytle

For many students, spring break is a vacation, a chance to step away from the stresses of daily life. But last year, Mary Carper and Kaylee Bluethmann (now sophomores) embarked on Marian University’s alternative spring break to Campton, Kentucky, and their experience wasn’t exactly a walk on the beach. Perhaps for the first time in their lives, the young women witnessed abject poverty - hungry people, living in a food desert, their lives oftentimes made even more complicated by a lack of education, drug addiction, and alcohol abuse.

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.
