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 courses including Accounting, Chemisty, Math, and Philosophy.

What SI Participants Say...

"SI really helped me understand the material better. Sometimes being shown a different way of doing something or getting individual attention allowed me to see specifically what I was doing wrong."
        -Fall 2015 Participant


"The advantage of having an SI for this course was that I put more study time into the course and I had someone to sit down and explain the material to me."
        -Fall 2015 Participant


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