The Center for Student-Athlete Enhancement, along with the Marist Fair Trade Committee and Campus Sustainability Advisory Committee, will be hosting "Shut Out Trafficking," an athletics-drive initiative to raise awareness of human trafficking in the U.S. and abroad.
The Center has partnered with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and the National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS) to organize several events that will highlight the issues related to human trafficking, and promote purchase of fair trade products to limit our impact on human trafficking. There will be presentations by Hannah Gould (End Trafficking Fellow - UNICEF USA) and Delise O'Meally (Executive Director - NCAS).
These events are open to faculty, staff, students, and members of our community to attend.

This year marks the bicentennial of the founding of the Marist Brothers by the French priest Saint Marcellin Champagnat. Marist will mark the occasion with a choral tribute performed by the Marist College Chamber Choir on Wednesday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in the Fusco Recital Hall.
The Brothers were founded in 1817 with a mission of educating young people, particularly the most neglected. Today, there are 3,500 Marist Brothers working in 81 countries on five continents. The Brothers work alongside 72,000 laypeople to provide an outstanding education to approximately 654,000 children and young people.
As the founders of Marist College, the Brothers passed along the values that continue to guide the College's work every day: excellence in education, a sense of community, and a commitment to service.
