Meet the SI Leaders

SI Leaders are prepared to share with students how to effectively study for the course. They attend the same class every day, taking notes and listening closely to the professor. At each session, the SI Leader will guide the students through the course concepts and share the strategies he or she used to be successful in the course. SI Leaders will not re-lecture, give out copies of his or her notes, help students with assigned homework, or encourage last minute test cramming. The SI coordinating team trains them in how to be effective facilitators and receive ongoing supervision.
