Shannon Deville, a former marine, is the director of the Schreiner Institute. This new program at Schreiner University will provide students desiring to apply to one of the Military Academies training, classes and coaching to provide the best chance of success. Schreiner will be partnering with the UTSA ROTC program to provide further training and preparation for the students. The Institute will provide military academy preparation, leadership training, a rigorous academic program and physical preparation.
The program will also provide assistance to veterans enrolled at Schreiner University. Veterans who are in college are generally older than the typical student just out of high school, and have different life experiences. The goal is to provide a space on campus where other veterans can meet their peers and obtain assistance and tutoring if needed.
