Meet Our Mathematics Fellows


Our Mathematics Fellow program brings help directly to the classroom.  Mathematics Fellows are qualified students who will assist in your math class and also offer one hour of supplemental instruction (SI) outside class each week.  These SI sessions are student-centered and have proven to have a positive impact on student success and retention.  Let's meet our Mathematics Fellows for this FALL!
