What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) was designed at the University of Missouri- Kansas City (UMKC) and is an academic model that uses peer-facilitated study sessions for students taking historically difficult courses.

SI is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. The SI sessions are free, regularly scheduled, informal review sessions geared towards helping to develop organizational tools.

Sessions are led by SI leaders who are students who have previously taken the course and done well.

Which courses offer Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Information for fall sessions will be available in September

How does Supplemental Instruction work?

SI leaders attend class with students currently enrolled in courses that offer SI (see above) each week and host regularly scheduled review sessions.
