Why should my class have SI?
SI is a nationally recognized program meant to provide students in breadth education courses peer-to-peer, academic support to persist to graduation. SI leaders are trained undergraduates who teach core competencies within the framework of the course. Typically, SI leaders have taken and received a high grade in the course they assist in. SI leaders help students succeed by focusing on inquiry-based learning, communication skills, study strategies and executive function processes.
