Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that is highlighted by the collaboration of faculty with both the SI Leader who attends class and members of the Student Success Center Staff. Our SI Supervisors have completed specialized training provided by the University of Missouri-Kansas City's Center for Academic Development-Supplemental Instruction, the developers of this tutoring model. Students enrolled in targeted courses attend regularly scheduled informal review sessions during which they work in groups to compare notes, discuss reading assignments, develop review techniques and prepare for exams. Students who attend these sessions practice integrating content with learning strategies.
