Faces of SI -- Who's Who


MSJC (district) SI Coordinator
Janice Levasseur
Office:  MVC room 505 ~ SJC room 1254B 
Janice Levasseur, SI Coordinator.jpgJanice Levasseur's experience with SI goes way back to her undergraduate days at Sonoma State University when she served as an SI Leader for an Introduction to Statistics class. Over a decade later, Janice, then the Math Center Coordinator, introduced SI to MSJC (Menifee Valley Campus, MVC) by providing SI support for an Elementary Statistics course.  To her delight, the results were just as advertised -- increased student success and retention.  Janice continued her work to grow the SI program slowly at MVC.  In the Fall 2007 semester, Janice was assisted in piloting SI at the San Jacinto Campus, SJC.  For several semesters, the SI Program went relatively unnoticed until the data caught the attention of the Associate Dean of Research and Planning who started spreading the word.  Today the MSJC SI Program is a significant and vibrant student support program at MSJC! 
For more information about the MSJC SI Program, please feel free to contact Janice.  She's always more than happy to talk SI!

A Supplemental Instruction Leader (SIL) is a student who has successfully completed the course they will serve as SIL for.  SILs have, preferably, a previous relationship with the instructor of the SI targeted course.  SILs serve as a “near-peer” to the students in class and model good student behavior (attend all classes, are attentive, take notes, and model organizational and study skills.)  SILs conduct two out-of-class review sessions that enable participants to process the course content delivered in class.   SIL are trained in the beginning of and throughout the semester. 


For more information or if you are interested in serving as a SI Leader, please contact Janice Levasseur (SI Coordinator) at
