The Office of Multicultural Services (OMS) serves the needs of students of color and international students and seeks to create a climate conducive to serving the multicultural population of Malone University. Multicultural Services seeks to provide resources, support services, and educational programming for all students. It is our goal to assist Malone University in building and maintaining a community that is more inclusive of underrepresented American ethnic minorities and international students.
The mission of Multicultural Services is to increase the number of students of color who achieve success at Malone University. To accomplish this mission, we strive to:
- improve the campus climate and academic environment for students of color
- develop and implement programming that educates and informs the Malone community on issues of diversity and inclusion
- provide services to students of color which will enhance their academic, social, and spiritual growth
- provide resources and educational programming to our campus community concerning multicultural issues
The Office of Multicultural Services maintains records for all international students for retention and SEVIS regulations while coordinating programs to ensure the student success, safety, and retention. We also serve and advise all students of color and multi-ethnic students in the areas of academic, social, and spiritual growth. Services also include collecting and distributing information on opportunities that would be of special interest to students of color, including scholarships, employment, internships, graduate programs, and campus activities.
Safety and Parking
Campus Safety assists in the safety of all students, staff and faculty at Malone and in the protection of both personal and University property. All officers receive training from GardaWorld Security Services and on-site instruction, and are here to help as well as protect. The full cooperation of every student is required whenever approached by a safety officer. Safety can be reached 24/7, 365 days a year, at x8111 from on campus or 330.471.8111 from off campus.
Driving and parking on the Malone campus are privileges given to all students, as long as the student parking regulations are honored. All student vehicles must be registered on Malone Xpress. Any student or family that plans to have more than one vehicle on campus at the same time must register each vehicle.
All students are advised to download the free smart phone app, Campus Shield Safety App. Adding it to a cell phone and properly registering results in the phone number being automatically entered into the Emergency Alert texting system. Campus Shield also offers other safety benefits that students may find useful, especially while on campus. Non-smart phone users can still submit phone numbers to the emergency alert notification system.
