Apply to be an SI Leader

The role of the SI leader involves modeling behavior that translates to success in the classroom. By attending the class, the SI leader is able to understand faculty expectations. The SI leader works with the students voluntarily attending study sessions by generating relevant discussions and creating worksheets and test questions that enable students to feel empowered when encountering difficult material. SI leaders participate in extensive training the week before classes begin each semester.

If you are interested in becoming an SI leader, the first step is to share your intention with your course professor. SI leaders are recommended by their professors for the position. Additionally, all SI leader candidates must:

    • Complete the SI course at SU with a final course grade of A or B
    • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
    • Obtain a recommendation from the SI course professor
    • Apply and interview for the position with the SI program staff

SI leaders are hired on a semester basis and earn a semester stipend. Recruitment for new SI leaders occurs in late September and late February each year.
