The SLC Peer-Led Study Group Program provides opportunities for students enrolled in introductory natural science courses to meet on a weekly basis with a group of up to 15 peers to review course material, solve problems, and gain an understanding of course concepts. Study groups are facilitated by peer facilitators who have already successfully completed the course at UM, and are trained in facilitation techniques.

During the 2022-2023 academic year, the SLC offered 455 study groups led by 227 peer facilitators across 18 courses, with over 5000 students participating as members. These study groups provide a dynamic opportunity for students to study and interact with their peers. The meetings are designed to engage all group members, and are not meant to be tutoring or review sessions led solely by the group facilitator. Facilitators use facilitation techniques, encouraging and supporting members to teach and learn from each other. Study group membership is voluntary, but members are required to attend regularly and participate actively.
