Supplemental Instruction: Ask, Learn, Succeed

Designed by researchers at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, SI is a peer academic enhancement program used by hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the world. Students who have performed well in historically difficult courses are nominated to be SI leaders by their faculty members.  SI leaders are then paired with an instructor, attend all class sessions, and facilitate three hours of study sessions each week, open to all enrolled students. SI offers weekly structured study sessions where students can:
· 
ASK questions, discuss, and practice  content 
· LEARN strategies and skills to study 
· SUCCEED: Participants often earn higher grades

Denoted by -5XX section numbers, SI supports many General Education and introductory courses including Accounting, Chemisty, Math, and Philosophy.

What SI Participants Say...

"SI sessions provide another way to learn the same information.  Sometimes just hearing someone else say the same or very similar information can make a world of difference in helping to understand something."
        -Spring 2016 Participant

"SI makes studying more effective!"
        -Spring 2016 Participant


"Most of all it gives me not only good grades, but a confidence in myself as well as my intelligence."
        -Fall 2015 Participant
