Supplemental Instruction (SI) at Buffalo State is a program that targets courses that students often find challenging and provides additional instructional time with peers to help students deepen their understanding of course concepts and prepare for assignments. Courses that included SI time have a required additional hour built into students' schedule. The SI session times are scheduled group meetings in which SI Leaders (who are academically successful Buffalo State students) help students in the SI course review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for assignments and examinations.
The Supplemental Instruction Program offers several benefits:
free peer-led sessions by successful Buffalo State upperclassman
an additional hour of support for challenging courses
learn additional study techniques which will help in all Buffalo State courses
better preparation for exams, quizzes, and homework
students collaborate and engage more with their peers
