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.

64K by 6.4 Challenge Raises Funds for Technology

by Katie Bradley | Jun 06, 2014

Last week, the Office of Institutional Advancement raised $72,125 for the 64K by 6.4 Challenge, beating their goal of $64,000.

The three-day campaign raised money for the Simmons Technologies Capability Endowment, an endowment that allows Marian University to integrate cutting-edge technology into classrooms and throughout campus.   

“Technology changes daily and in order for Marian University to keep ahead of the ever-changing trends, it is imperative that we invest in our technological infrastructure,” said Kenith Britt, Ph.D., senior vice president of institutional advancement. “Your gifts allow us to support, research, and initiate activities that help students learn how to work with technology; improve the experiential learning activities that occur outside the classroom; and provide a platform that helps students build the skills necessary to be successful after leaving Marian University.”

Although the 64K by 6.4 Challenge has concluded, you can still give to this worthy cause. Please contact Kenith C. Britt, Ph.D., senior vice president of Institutional Advancement at kbritt@marian.edu to make your pledge or learn more.
