Academic Affairs


Dr. Suzanne Blum Malley

As Provost, I am very pleased to welcome all new, continuing, and prospective students to Methodist University.

One of the things I value most about MU is our distinctive and compelling mission. The call of the MU mission to explore and “affirm the intellectual values and ethical principles such as truth, virtue, justice, and love” provides a strong framework for all aspects of a Methodist University education. We are committed to your success while you are here, and to seeing you thrive as you complete your university education and leave us to “meaningfully and creatively contribute” to your chosen profession and to the communities and world around you.

As you explore our undergraduate, graduate, and fully online programs, I hope that you see yourself in one or more of our offerings, all of which bring together the best aspects of liberal arts and professional education, while also developing civic, social, and cultural leadership capacities, fueled by ethical and entrepreneurial thinking.

MU is you! The people – the students, the faculty, and the staff – are what make our Monarch community so special. We are continually working to support you as you make connections to new friends, peers, faculty mentors, advisors, and support staff. I invite you to take full advantage of all that our campus and community have to offer by getting involved — explore our beautiful campus, participate in athletics, join student groups and activities and/or create your own, get to know your faculty, meet regularly with your academic and career advisor, take advantage of our support services (in-person or online), and don’t be afraid to ask for help or direction if you need it.

Welcome to our Monarch community!

Suzanne Blum Malley, Ph.D.
