A Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader is an undergraduate student who is assigned to a specific course and facilitates two to three identical 50-minute sessions a week. SI Leaders attend the lecture of the course to which they are assigned, plan and conduct their sessions using collaborative activities to combine course content with effective study strategies, and meet weekly as a group to collaborate on planning and troubleshooting their sessions. Qualified applicants can be any full-time UT student who has taken all of the prerequisites and preferences are given to those who have received at least a B in the course they support (see here for a list of currently SI-supported courses).

SI leaders work approximately 10 hours per week: three hours of attending class, two hours of planning sessions, two to three hours of facilitating identical SI sessions (depending on the course), one hour of a weekly cohort meeting, and one hour of administrative tasks.

The Supplemental Instruction program is dedicated to being an inclusive and equitable program, so we highly encourage students who have experienced struggle (academic or otherwise) to apply. This position and the program value those who can provide compassionate facilitation and leadership to their peers.
