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.
