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.

Alumni Hall Set to Open in August

by Amber Ferrari | May 22, 2014

While students may have headed home for summer, we are wasting no time readying the campus for their return in the fall! The construction of Alumni Hall, Marian University’s new student center, is moving quickly and is scheduled for completion in August 2014. As of May 21, plumbing, electrical rough-ins, and roof installation have been completed.

Projects scheduled in the coming weeks include:

  • inside framing
  • drywall
  • exterior masonry
  • fireplace construction

Students are eager for Alumni Hall to open. Becca Wagner ’15, clinical laboratory science major says, “It is funny to think that the foundation started as a pile of dirt and now there is an actual building there. I am excited to have a new place to study, and having Starbucks on campus will be nice.”

Alumni Hall RenderingMarian University will officially open Alumni Hall in August. The ribbon cutting will be a special part of the 2014 Homecoming festivities and takes place on Saturday, October 18.
