Dr. Malino’s own education started at Wellesley College, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy in 1967. She continued at Columbia University to earn a Master of Philosophy in history and attained a Ph.D. in American History at the university in1982. Prior to becoming a college professor, Dr. Malino taught at a private high school and a therapeutic school. Spending time in England and Israel helped Dr. Malino discover that she really wanted to teach at the collegiate level to conceptualize the multiple narratives of U.S. history in order to include the voices of ordinary people. Dr. Malino found a position at Guilford College and remained a history professor until her retirement in June 2013.
Dr. Malino’s retirement is chock full of activity which goes in line with how active she was during her years of teaching. Currently, she is working on a collaborative research project with her mentor, the founder of the women’s studies program at Guildford College. Together, and with a few other faculty members, alumnae and students, the project aims to explore the origins, evolution and impact of 40 years of women’s studies. This includes gender, sexuality and the struggles and achievements throughout the years. The group endeavors to apply for grant money to fund the project and intend to publish a book with their findings. Dr. Malino is also working with the college’s archivist to create an e-portfolio.
