Supplemental Instruction for Faculty


Center for Academic Achievement


The Center for Academic Achievement strives to develop relationships with faculty as they play a key role in the success of Supplemental Instruction. The faculty member can be an excellent resource and mentor for the SI Leader, for their academic and personal development. The CAA encourages frequent interactions between the faculty and students to ensure that each SI session is valuable to the students in your course. This interaction models the student-faculty relationship, which validates that faculty are the most valuable resources in the course.


Expectations of Faculty
  • Regular meetings with the SI Leader
  • Discuss the course content with the SI Leader
  • Provide recommendations for new SI Leaders
  • Provide continual feedback on the SI Leader performance
  • Allow the SI Leader to make short announcements during the class regarding weekly sessions
  • Encourage students to regularly attend SI sessions
  • Be a resource and mentor for the SI Leader


SI Leaders are trained not to:
  • Do the course work for students
  • Provide answers to the students
  • Teach, grade, or give the impression they can do these things
  • Review graded assignments


If you would like to discuss SI for your course, the role of the SI Leader, or have any questions regarding the program and services please contact:
