Supplemental Instruction

What is SI?

faculty SISupplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions.  SI sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and become better prepared for exams.  Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together.  The sessions are facilitated by "SI Leaders," students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students.

SI is FREE and open to anyone who is enrolled in the course.  Studies have shown that students who attend these sessions regularly can expect to earn a final grade of at least a letter grade higher than those who did not attend the sessions.
