Tomas Rivera Center seeks supplemental instruction leaders for fall
(April 22, 2010)--The UTSA Tomas Rivera Center is recruiting supplemental instruction (SI) leaders for the fall 2010 semester. A presentation on the SI program will be from noon to 12:50 p.m., Monday, April 26 in Frio Street Building Room 3.530 at the Downtown Campus. At the meeting, students can meet current SI leaders and program staff and ask questions.
Additionally, students interested in joining the SI team can download an application at the Supplemental Instruction website or visit one of the Tomas Rivera Center offices in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 2.02.20, Main Camps, and Durango Building Room 2.114, Downtown Campus.
Students applying to be an SI leader must have at least a 3.0 G.P.A., completed an assigned course with an A or B grade, completed 24 credit hours, excellent communication skills, and a faculty recommendation.
Last year more than 160 UTSA students gained valuable experience serving the university community as SI leaders. SI leaders work approximately 10 hours per week attending class meetings, reviewing assigned readings and holding three 50-minute study sessions for students enrolled in historically difficult courses at UTSA.
Representing one of the most rewarding and flexible jobs on campus, the SI program offers a unique employment opportunity that enhances the successful student's academic and leadership experience.
