“Christ’s Kingdom First” states clearly the Christian commitment at Malone University. The University seeks to involve, equip, and release students to potentially life-changing ministry opportunities.
Campus Ministries staff members work closely with students, university staff, and faculty to facilitate spiritual formation. Programs are designed to encourage personal and campus-wide spiritual development, participation in society as Kingdom citizens, and spiritual and moral accountability. The Campus Ministries Department is located in the Randall Campus Center.
The practical aspects of Christian commitment, such as service and evangelism, take students outside of the Malone community. To serve the poor and needy locally, students help in soup kitchens, collect food for the hungry, and participate in other outreach programs. Students may also participate in service or spiritual development trips to urban centers of major cities or other areas of the United States that are in need. Trips outside of the United States (e.g., Africa, China, Central America, and Eastern Europe) are planned annually. Trips vary each year; for more information, see the Director of Service Learning.
Chapel at Malone University is essential to the distinctive mission and identity of the University and its effort to integrate the Christian faith with the whole of our lives. Chapel is intended to creatively engage the Malone University community with the gospel and the implications of life in the Kingdom of God. Integrity characterizes both the presentations and the presenters. Chapel ministry goals include providing opportunities:
- to understand and develop a personal faith in Jesus Christ
- for the University community to understand and experience a deeper relationship with God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through worship, which is indispensable for personal wholeness
- to understand the implications of the Christian faith by addressing pertinent character, cultural, and theological issues leading to a life-long commitment to service, and consequently to positively influencing our campus culture
- to address our cultural tendency toward individualism by providing a forum which uniquely reinforces a sense of campus community and identity.
Within our Christian framework, we believe that all teaching of truth must be built on a foundation of God’s truth. Since students are required to study the truth of physical science, the arts, and literature, there is no contradiction in requiring students to study God’s truth. Chapel facilitates students’ experience and understanding of God’s truth through study of the Bible, exposure to corporate worship, and opportunities to understand the relationship offered to us in Christ. Therefore, all full-time students are required to participate in the Chapel program while they are members of the student body.
Office of Student Retention
The Office of Student Retention has been designated to coordinate campus-wide efforts for ensuring student success and/or retention. The primary objective is to enable students to successfully achieve the goal of graduation. We continually look for ways of improving student satisfaction and connection with the Malone family.
Students are invited to request the assistance of this office for help in overcoming any obstacles to enrollment. The Director will provide students with resources and referrals to resources both here at Malone and in the community. Requests for help in dealing with academic, financial, spiritual, and/or personal challenges are welcomed.
Students seeking readmission to Malone University after a break in attendance should contact this office for help in completing all requirements.
The Office of Student Retention is located on the 2nd level of the Randall Campus Center (the ‘Barn’). Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Director, Patty Little, may be reached at 330-471-8359 or at email@example.com.
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 Buckeye Protective 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 hours a day, 365 days a year by dialing extension 8111 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 display a parking permit for the current academic year. This permit is obtained by registering the vehicle at the Physical Plant office. The fee is $50.00 per academic year, with a $10.00 late fee if registered after the first week of classes. Any student or family that plans to have more than one vehicle on campus at the same time must purchase a separate permit for each vehicle. Parking permits must be displayed on the rear view mirror of the vehicle at all times. Failure to do so will result in a parking violation fine. Temporary parking permits must be obtained for students or visitors with an unregistered vehicle on campus. Temporary permits are granted at no cost to students, for a maximum period of two weeks per semester.
