Dr. Frampton understands the challenges and opportunities of independent colleges and universities, and he has a history of responding to these in ways that are innovative even as they honor the past. He and his family will be a welcome addition to Schreiner University and the Hill Country.”

Schreiner is a wonderful university, and Dr. Charlie McCormick is an incredible president and we are excited for the future that Dr. Travis Frampton has and the opportunities he is going to be afforded. We will miss him greatly, he is such an integral part of our campus, and yet we know that God has greater things for him. And we look forward to seeing all the things he will do at Schreiner University.”

Frampton and his family will make a move to the Hill Country over the summer, and he will begin his position on July 1, 2019.
