Information for Faculty

The SLC Peer-Led Study Group Program values faculty support and recognizes how critical it is to our success. 

Peer-Led Study Groups are offered as an option for outside-of-class learning for introductory level natural science courses. The groups, composed of up to 13 students, meet weekly for two hours. Students who have already successfully completed the course at U-M, and who are trained in group facilitation and collaborative learning techniques, serve as Study Group Facilitators. Study Groups focus on engaging all members in the learning process, and may include activities like collectively reviewing notes, working together to solve problems or critiquing each other's work.  

SLC professional staff are always available to answer faculty questions, receive feedback about students' study group experience, or listen to ideas on how to improve the program. Faculty may also request study groups for courses where they are currently not offered. You can reach the Study Group Program staff by sending an e-mail to slcstudygroups@umich.edu.
