Academic Support Services
We encourage and facilitate active learning so our students can be competent, confident and independent learners.
By doing so, we hope to establish a learning community at Harding by partnering with faculty, staff and students to help better understand, develop and improve academic support services for all students.

DIY Learning Strategies
While we are always here to help, check out our Do-It-Yourself Learning Strategies to make sure you're in the right frame of mind for success.
SI Leaders know the course content and are eager to help guide you through it. They'll be in class with you every day, hearing what you hear and reading what you read. What they won't do is lecture; their job is to help you think about the lectures you hear and the books you read so you can learn it more efficiently.
Join us for a chance to get together with people in your class to compare notes, to discuss important concepts, to develop strategies for studying the subject, and to test yourself before your professor does so you'll be ready.
When do SI sessions start?
SI sessions began early in the semester, so be sure to bring your class schedule to your first day of class so they can accommodate as many students as possible when scheduling sessions.
How often should I attend?
Each SI leader will set up three or more review sessions a week at times that are best for the majority of the students. You can attend one, two or all three (the choice is yours), and each one will be different because you'll have new material to discuss. SI review sessions are informal. Bring your notes, bring your textbook, and bring your questions.

An overview of the SI program
Developed by Dr. Deanna Martin in 1973 at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that increases student performance and retention.
- The SI program targets traditionally difficult academic courses--those that have a high rate of D or F grades and withdrawals--and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated sessions.
- SI does not identify high-risk students, but rather identifies historically difficult classes.
- Assistance begins the first week of the term.
- SI sessions normally occur in classrooms near the course classroom instead of in a learning center.
- SI sessions are open to all students in the course and are attended on a voluntary basis free of charge.
- The SI leaders are the key people in the program. SI leaders are students who have demonstrated competence in this or in a comparable course.
- SI sessions are comprised of students of varying abilities, and no effort is made to segregate students based on academic ability. Since SI is introduced on the first day of classes and is open to all students in the class, SI is not viewed as remedial.
