Supplemental Instruction (SI), developed at the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 1973, is an academic assistance program that increases student performance and persistence. SI provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class study sessions for students enrolled in historically difficult courses - courses that have a high rate of D, F, and W grades. The Student Success Center partners with faculty to provide these sessions which are voluntary, free, and facilitated by a trained peer SI Leader.

SI is provided to students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades. SI is not a substitute for attending class or doing assigned homework.

SI leaders must be recommended by a faculty member and must have completed the course (or course equivalent) in which they want to SI. Students or faculty interested in SI should contact Ryan Norwood at (812) 941-2379 or norwoodr@ius.edu.

For Students

  • Regularly attend class meetings; SI is support for the course, not a replacement for lecture or faculty contact.
  • Complete all required readings prior to attending class and SI sessions.
  • Bring questions to sessions; participation is important for understanding difficult concepts. Be ready to share information and ask questions of fellow students.
  • Regularly attend SI. Research shows that students who attend SI at least once a week perform better on exams and earn higher grades.
  • Relax and have fun!
