College of San Mateo is embracing a proven model of student academic support: Supplemental Instruction! SI is based on peer-lead study sessions held outside of class where trained SI leaders reinforce the instruction provided by professors. Student-to-student interaction is the basis of this model which has been used world-wide since 1973.

The CSM Math department has been using the SI program in support of its Math 811 students for five semesters with impressive results.  We are very excited about this new academic support initiative and look forward to further expansion of the SI support model to include additional courses in the Language Arts and Creative Arts and Social Sciences divisions.
