Supplemental Instruction

Student receiving supplemental instruction


What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental instruction (SI) is a group-based approach to learning that supports students in their journey toward academic success by integrating “what to learn” with “how to learn.” SI consists of regularly scheduled out-of-class group study sessions. These are facilitated by trained SI leaders who utilize collaborative activities to ensure student-to-student interaction. SI is implemented in traditionally challenging courses at Rockhurst and is a free service offered to all students in a targeted course. You are encouraged to attend SI sessions throughout the semester. 

Fall 2020 Information

During the Fall 2020 semester, all Supplemental Instruction sessions will be held virtually.  Sessions will be held live on Zoom and are open to all students in the class.  Office Hours will also be virtual.  You can visit your SI leader via Zoom during their office hours if you have individual questions or need extra assistance.  Your SI Leader will contact you with instructions on how to attend sessions and office hours and a Zoom link for your class' SI sessions.  If you do not have the link or need assistance, please contact Sara Keenan at
