Re: Our Concern for Faculty Personnel
AN OPEN ADMISSION
Experiencing a rising enrollment, Malone College seeks your assistance in recruiting qualified faculty personnel for the 1965–66 college year.
A NEW COLLEGE
Malone College began operations as a Christian, liberal arts college in Canton, Ohio in 1957. In seven years the college advanced to full accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and membership in the Ohio College Association.
The new campus has had continual additions in buildings and services. The enrollment has grown from 267 to 1010. Admission standards include that of graduation in the upper half of the high school class.
A MUTUAL CONFRONTATION
Malone College is a conservative, evangelical Christian college operated by the Ohio Yearly Meeting of the Friends Church for the church, Greater Canton and surrounding communities, and Christian youth. Thus the college serves with a non-denominational outreach a heterogeneous community as well as Christian youth.
Dialog between the committed and non-committed is seen to be a strength for the academic and Christian purposes of the college. The college deliberately brings together for mutual confrontation the challenge of the Christian faith and the diverse interests and educational needs of all its students and the world in which they live.
A PRESENT NEED
The college is committed to the position that the faculty is the key to quality. Neither the academic or Christian purposes can be realized without scholars who are respected in their academic fields and who have the breadth of life and learning to create an atmosphere of reflection, achievement, and Christian vocation.
Faculty needs include most fields found in a liberal arts college: literature and composition, speech, German, history (non-American fields), sociology, economics, micro and developmental biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics-mathematics, psychology, elementary education, and philosophy. A professional librarian and an admissions counselor are needed. Only those with or close to the doctorate are sought. Experienced college teachers without the doctorate may be considered in certain fields.
The national averages for salaries paid in private liberal arts colleges for 1964–65 are: instructors, $5792; assistant professors, $6815; associate professors, $7926; and full professors, $9883. Malone salaries agree well with these figures. Faculty fringe benefits include major medical and life insurance programs, a retirement program with TIAA, sabbatical leave, doctoral loan programs, and free tuition for faculty children.
All correspondence should be directed to the Dean of the College, Malone College, Canton, Ohio 44709. Brochures regarding the college are available.
