Schedule of SI Sessions 

 

SI sessions will begin the first week of class. SI leaders will introduce themselves and survey the class for best time frames to hold sessions. Individual sessions may be scheduled with the SI leader independently of the group sessions. SI leaders will also hold office hours to best accommodate those unable to attend the SI sessions. Online students may attend individual SI sessions with their leader via Blackboard Collaborate; appointments must be made.
