Body: 
Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program offers weekly study sessions to students taking “historically” difficult courses. The Supplemental Instruction (SI) Coordinator is responsible for all SI policies and program management. The SI leaders are Academic Support Center Student Employees who report to the SI Coordinator. The role of the SI Coordinator is that of facilitator, supervisor, instructor, and mentor for the SI Leaders. As such, the Coordinator will be available as the primary contact and resource person for SI Leaders, and is charged with supporting all educational activities associated with the SI program. Study sessions are led by SI Leaders who have excelled in or tested out of the targeted course(s). SI leaders attend SI Courses, lectures, participate in classroom activities, and even take course exams. During the study sessions, they teach learning and study strategies while working with students to interpret what has been read or heard, generate new ideas, and put content-related concepts into perspective. What SI leaders do NOT do is re-lecture or go beyond the content covered in class.
