Malone University is a place where students receive a top-notch education while they explore 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 purposes. 

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 it is also our beliefs, attitudes, and values that turn conviction into action, which matters even more. 

Although primarily a teaching college, Malone offers opportunities to create new knowledge through our rigorous annual undergraduate research symposium. This cutting-edge approach to hands-on learning has allowed Malone to be ranked in the top 4% in career outcomes by Educate to Career, the leader in educational attainment to career outcome data.
