The Malone Community

Malone is more than just an organization; it is a community of persons which includes administrators, faculty, support staff, and all students enrolled in any of the classes offered by the University on its campus.

We recognize that our students represent a wide range of backgrounds, attitudes, needs, and goals. Therefore, as a distinctively Christian university in the liberal arts tradition, Malone views each person as an individual with certain responsibilities to the University community.

These responsibilities are based upon three assumptions to which we are firmly committed.

First, individuals are Christian by virtue of the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8,9) and their commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord.

Second, while Christians have a sincere desire to mature both in insight and behavior, we recognize that there exist levels of maturity in a Christian academic community such as Malone.

Third, some students who choose Malone may not agree with some of these stated community responsibilities. However, since all students are part of the community, all are expected to act responsibly toward the community.

If the conduct of any member of the Malone community is found to be detrimental either to his/her own personal development or to that of other members of the community, we will seek to aid that member. However, if that member shows serious or continued violation of responsibility, the University will dismiss that member from the community.

Malone strives to help its students develop into mature Christian men and women who are equipped to meet all of life head-on. While we seek to strengthen each member of the community, we realize that not all, whether Christian or not, can fit into the Malone community. For those who cannot, there are educational opportunities elsewhere. For those who can, the opportunity here can be of unlimited value.
