How to become an SI Leader

SI leaders are students who have already successfully completed the SI course they facilitate. They are recommended by faculty and are trained in the SI collaborative learning approach. SI leaders attend every class with their students and then plan and facilitate regularly scheduled study sessions that encourage student collaboration in order to gain a better understanding of the content being covered in class. The time commitment involved typically ranges from 9-11 hours per week.

Is this for you?  


In general, we’re looking for students who:

  • Are high achieving students who have performed successfully in the class for which they plan to be an SI leader (and preferably with the same professor, although that’s not always feasible);
  • Maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher;
  • Are above the classification of freshman and have completed at least one semester at UNF;
  • Possess excellent interpersonal communication skills;
  • Have a schedule which allows them to attend lectures for the class for which they plan to be an SI leader;
  • Do not have a conduct record, and who demonstrate professionalism with the Undergraduate Studies staff, their peers, and their students. 



We hire SI leaders on an as-needed basis, typically prior to the start of each semester. For more information, please contact the SI program at
