About Our College
Captain Charles Schreiner Sr. founded Schreiner Institute (sometimes called Schreiner Military Institute) in 1917 and worked toward its establishment until 1923. The military institute, a residential school, was created for young boys and included both secondary school and junior college curricula to prepare students for further education. 1971 marked the end of military training at the institute. In 1973, it began focusing on a college curriculum and changed its name to Schreiner College. The college experience changed once more in 1981 when it became a four-year college. The college became Schreiner University in 2001 and began offering master's degrees. Schreiner University now hosts a number of lecture series and academic conferences, including its annual popular culture symposium.
