What is SI?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is available for students in select chemistry courses. SI sessions provide you with the chance to get together with classmates and compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop study strategies, and quiz one another.

SI is recommended for all students in first-year chemistry courses who want to improve both their understanding of course material and their grades. The sessions are facilitated by a trained SI leader.

Become an SI Leader

SI leaders attend course lectures, take notes, plan, and facilitate interactive SI sessions to assist students with course content and study skills. They lead a minimum of three hour-long study sessions per week for designated courses, plus a two-hour "marathon session" before each exam.

Following training sessions at the beginning of the semester, SI Leaders attend regular weekly training meetings. SI leaders are also responsible for promoting the program and developing a good working relationship with the faculty member teaching the designated courses. They typically work about 10 hours per week.

SI is a paid, professional opportunity for student leaders to build rapport with an academic department, gain experience in facilitating interactive groups, and review an academic discipline in preparation for an advanced degree or job. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required.

Applications for the next academic year are accepted starting the week following Winter Carnival, with the deadline being one week after Spring Break. However, to assure hiring for the next academic year, applications should be submitted by end of March.
