History of Malone
Malone University was founded in 1892 as the Cleveland Bible College by Friends couple Walter and Emma Malone. The first classrooms were located in a rented home in Cleveland, Ohio.
Putting Faith into Action
Inspired by young people in their community who “had the call of the Lord in their hearts," the Malones’ vision was “to open a small school in which the Bible could be taught every day and supervision given in practical Christian work, such as visiting the sick, calling in homes and personal evangelism.” The college initially attracted students from the surrounding area, but enrollment steadily increased.
The Evolution of Malone University
In 1957, with more young men and women arriving from neighboring states, the college relocated to Canton, and was renamed Malone College in honor of its founders. The curriculum also changed, and Malone became a Christian liberal arts college. The Christian liberal arts approach, the very essence of Malone, is widely recognized today as producing exceptional graduates, not only for today’s competitive marketplace, but for all aspects of life.
In 2008, Malone College became Malone University. A fully accredited Christian college, Malone offers a strong educational experience based on Biblical faith. Faculty members recognize Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and are committed to the integration of a biblical worldview with an exceptional academic curriculum.
