Schreiner Convocation is Aug. 28

Schreiner University officially starts a new academic year with Convocation at 1 p.m., Friday, Aug. 28, in the Dietert Auditorium on the Schreiner campus. At the annual ceremony this year Schreiner will welcome Dr. Charlie McCormick, new provost and chief academic officer.

“At Schreiner, Convocation is an opportunity for faculty, staff, students and friends to come together and officially start the academic year,” McCormick said. “As this will be my first convocation experience at Schreiner, I am excited to be ceremonially inducted into the community. Ritual moments such as this certainly mark individuals as belonging to a particular community, but they also make outsiders become insiders. I look forward to officially joining my colleagues as a Schreiner insider.”
