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 Sponsors WTHR Health and Fitness Expo

by Katie Bradley | May 01, 2014

Nearly eight thousand people attended last weekend’s WTHR Health and Fitness Expo, presented by Marian University.

Held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, the expo featured: Andrew Luck, quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts; Bret Michaels, legendary rocker, entrepreneur, and philanthropist; Nick Goepper, 2014 Olympic Winter Games bronze medalist skier; and Sarah Fisher, Verizon IndyCar team owner.

Marian University had more than 100 student volunteers from the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) and the Alan and Sue Leighton School of Nursing. Students and faculty performed adult health screenings and demonstrations for children including sessions about germs, the amount of sugar in their favorite drinks, and diaper changing.

However, the hit of the Marian University booth was the mannequin from the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences simulation lab. Attendees were able to listen to the lungs of the mannequin to learn the difference between coughing and wheezing.

On Saturday, MU-COM organized the “Celebration of Wellness 5K,” which had nearly 100 people running, walking, or rolling to the finish line. Winners of the 5K received their awards on the main stage of the expo.

Other popular activities included: CrossFit with The Finish Line, cooking demonstrations with local chefs, and a group Zumba class.
