SI Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Supplemental Instruction Program at UHD is to improve student comprehension, content mastery, and critical thinking skills through collaborative, peer-facilitated group study sessions. Our goal is to improve the individual performance of undergraduate students in order to create a positive impact on institutional retention and graduation rates.


How does SI help students?

Studies show that those who participate in study groups are more likely to succeed academically than those who do not participate in study groups. SI study sessions are facilitated by SI leaders and consist of informal groups in which students review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools and prepare for exams. SI Leaders offer weekly, outside-of-class study sessions to all students enrolled in a targeted course.

What is an SI Leader?

An SI Leader for a targeted course is a current UHD student who has successfully completed the targeted SI course in their academic career. SI leaders serve as model students for their classmates by attending all class lectures and demonstrating the smart study skills that has helped them succeed. Outside of class, SI Leaders conduct group study sessions for UHD students and create exam reviews for their assigned classes. Sessions will be held online or in-person in S405. Session times change every semester. Check the current s​ch​edule​ ​for session days and times for your courses.

Can I attend a session if I do not have an SI Leader in my class?

YES! Each semester a new schedule of SI sessions is posted to the SI website. The schedule will reflect session days/times for current courses in which there is an SI Leader. All sessions are free and no appointment is required to attend a session. If you don't see your course, contact siprogram@uhd.edu about possible alternative options.
