Schreiner University identifies and evaluates the success of students (i.e. student achievement) using a broad range of criteria, consistent with the mission of the institution and guided by the Office of Academic Support and Student Outcomes. These identified measures are evaluated on an ongoing basis and published regularly on the institution’s external website, promoting a transparent profile of the institution to all of its students, parents of students, faculty, staff, and board of trustees.

Inherently, student success remains at the core of the mission of Schreiner University; however, the way in which student success and student achievement are defined is not limited to one source or value, nor is it limited to a specific group of students (e.g. only the incoming Freshman cohort).


Student success measures at Schreiner University are connected to the mission and goals of the institution. These institutional goals are defined through a collection of statements from the most recently adopted and approved Strategic Plan 2023. Noted below, the collection of statements articulates the institution’s distinctiveness, purpose, and values which drive student achievement measures.

At Schreiner University, students enter with hope and leave with achievement. We are a diverse, fiercely independent university. We are affiliated by choice and covenant with the Presbyterian Church (USA) with a main campus in the Texas Hill Country and first year campuses throughout the state.

Schreiner University is a place of opportunity. We offer undergraduate and graduate students a personalized, integrated, and holistic educational experience that prepares them for meaningful work and purposeful lives in a changing global society. Students study in-depth in a specific area of interest while acquiring broad skills and habits of mind to navigate a complex, diverse, and unscripted future.

  • All students are valuable and unique;
  • Every student should grow intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially;
  • We value diversity of people and thought in a setting of open, civil discourse;
  • Life-long learning and service to society are critical in a global world; and
  • Higher education must develop thoughtful, productive, and ethical citizens.

By 2023, Schreiner University will be a university of 2,250 students, educating men and women for service and leadership in the Hill Country, Texas, the nation, and world. We will recruit enthusiastic and diverse men and women and forge in them the intellectual, emotional, and personal resilience that has made Schreiner Institute, College, and University the uniquely Texan educational institution it has been, is, and will be.
