Schreiner University STEM Programs

Schreiner University strives to support academic and professional success. In an initiative to enhance academic and professional success Schreiner University applied and received funding from the United States Department of Education Title III, PR Award P031C160145 Grant. This grant serves many high-impact purposes to our students with a strategic focus on Hispanic and low-income students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

Those purposes include:

STEM Learning Communities

STEM Learning Communities – two academic communities that have shared academic and extra-curricular experiences which serve a freshman living and learning population as well as a transfer student learning population. Learn more about the STEM Learning Communities.

Schreiner University STEM ZONE
