Program Description

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is provided through Academic Support Centers. SI sessions are designed to assist students in increasing their understanding of course lectures, class readings and mastering course concepts.

Sessions are offered in selected courses each Fall and Spring semesters. SI Leaders provide two to three sessions each week, starting the second week of each semester. SI Leaders work with the faculty to design the sessions around the course syllabus and course content. Sessions are open to all students enrolled in the particular courses connected with Supplemental Instruction.

Historically, students attending SI sessions are more confident in the classroom, more prepared to complete assignments, and build a stronger connection with the faculty member.
