The Peer Supplemental Instruction (PSI) program serves two purposes: 1) supports student academic success in STEM-related courses, and 2) provides service learning leadership opportunities for junior and seniors wishing to excel in STEM-related degree programs.
PSI Support in STEM-related Courses
Peer Supplemental Instruction (PSI) supports academic success in STEM-related coursework (science, technology, engineering, math).
