Grant Summary

$200,000 over 24 months to improve student performance in select first-year and developmental courses that work toward key learning outcomes as part of an overall retention effort. To work toward this goal, the institutions will use "Supplemental Instruction" (SI) as a mode of instruction that strategically targets academic courses and offers regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated review sessions to all enrolled students. Xavier and Dillard will meet regularly over the course of the project and engage senior academic leaders at both institutions in assessing the feasibility of institutionalizing supplemental instruction.
