To the Malone University Community,

As the next step in our effort to keep members of our community safe from the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and as a result of Governor Mike DeWine’s recommendations to all Ohio-based institutions of higher learning, Malone University is moving to online learning for all classes beginning Monday, March 16. Face-to-face classes will transition to online and continue in this manner through Monday, April 13. Face-to-face classes will resume on Tuesday, April 14. This schedule may be modified depending on information and direction from the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the Ohio Department of Health. 

Details of Malone’s modified Spring Semester:

  • All classes will be taught online beginning Monday, March 16. Face-to-classes resume Tuesday, April 14. Students engaged in non-standard educational experiences (student teaching, clinicals, internships) will receive further instruction from their faculty members.
  • Students will receive additional information concerning the transition to online classes from academic leadership and their faculty members in the days ahead.
  • The Malone campus will remain open providing students access to their residence halls, dining hall, Wellness Center, and library.
  • Students who remain on campus are encouraged to practice social distancing as described by the World Health Organization. You can review details here.
  • Public events and any large scale campus events scheduled between March 16 and April 14 are cancelled. When possible, these events can be rescheduled for after April 14 recognizing that continued or additional precautions may be necessary depending on the spread of the virus.
  • All university sponsored air travel is suspended during the transition period (Monday, March 16 to Tuesday, April 14).
  • Malone University remains open and faculty and staff should report to campus according to their regular schedule. All campus units will remain open to serve students.
  • Intercollegiate athletic competition will continue under the guidelines established by the NCAA and the Great Midwest Athletic Conference. Indoor practices and training is closed to spectators. Outdoor competitions are open to spectators at this time.

We will continue to monitor information coming out from the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, and state health officials and share any additional information through email, social media, and the Malone website.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this time of great change to the way we do our business and live our lives. We are stronger together and will continue to take care of one another.
