The Learning Center offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) for selected courses on campus during the fall and spring semesters. SI provides free organized study sessions which are open to any students in the course and are led by undergraduates who are selected and trained to be SI leaders. 

The main goal of the SI program is to help students learn the course material and improve their course grade. In addition, we assist students in improving their study skills. We also provide students with an informal, personal, small group learning experience that helps them feel connected to other students and demonstrates the power of group study.
