We, the students of Malone University, do unite ourselves in establishing The Associated Students of Malone University by adopting for its government the following Constitution, in order that we might secure and maintain a closer relationship, provide a channel of communication with a clearer under-standing among students, faculty, and administration, further the education of students in democratic citizenship and government responsibility, cultivate a community of social and intellectual growth and educational opportunity through co-curricular activities, and foster the University's atmosphere of meaningful Christian lifestyle as written in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, under the dominion of Jesus Christ as Lord.
