Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program for challenging courses. SI leaders are students who attend classes, model effective academic skills and lead group study sessions for their classmates. SI leaders are paid for helping fellow students while strengthening their own academic skills. It might be a good fit for you if you're comfortable working in groups and enjoy explaining material in a fun, innovative way.
We accept applications on an ongoing basis. Each semester, we have openings in math, chemistry and some additional courses. We encourage you to submit your application now for future openings. We strive to have all SI leaders in place before a semester begins.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
All SI training meetings have moved online. All mandatory training sessions will take place on Teams for fall 2022. Remote SI training merge/transition:
During our SI training sessions, we model the UMKC SI Model with our fun and interactive components. Our training sessions are scheduled weekly or bi-weekly and cover a variety of topics. Attendance at mandatory training meetings provides resources for SI leaders and helps them create the best SI sessions for their students. All training sessions are developed to mirror the SI model.
