Fall 2022 SI Leaders

SI Left

A Supplemental Instruction Leader (SIL) is a student that re-enters a course that they have previously completed successfully.  SILs have, preferably, a previous relationship with the instructor of the SI targeted course. SILs serve as a “near-peer” to the students in class and model good student behavior (attend all classes, are attentive, take notes, and model organizational and study skills.)  SILs conduct two out-of-class review sessions that enable participants to process the course content delivered in class.   SIL are trained in the beginning of and throughout the semester. 

For more information or if you are interested in serving as a SI Leader, please contact Kathalena Rios (SI Coordinator) at or David Rowell (SI Specialist) at

*** If you are enrolled in a course that is supported with an SI Leader, please see your course Canvas Shell for session times.
