Why Malone?

Malone University is a place where students receive a top-notch education while exploring God’s calling for their futures. We believe God wants to work in students through their classroom and student activities, athletics, relationships, and spiritual life to draw them to His purpose.

We support students as they explore and develop their beliefs. In this way, we prepare students not only for jobs but for life. In the workplace and beyond, talent and skill matter, but more so, it’s our beliefs, attitudes, and values that turn our convictions into action that matters even more. 

Although primarily a teaching University, Malone offers opportunities to create new knowledge through our annual undergraduate research symposium. This cutting-edge approach to hands-on learning earns Malone a ranking in the top 4% of schools in career outcomes by Educate to Career, the leader in educational attainment to career outcome data.
