Omicron Delta Epsilon

The Department of Economics at DePaul sponsors the Pi Chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, an academic honor society dedicated to the encouragement of excellence in economics. Declared economics majors and minors will be considered for induction once they have completed the intermediate economic theory courses (ECO 305 and ECO 306). The induction ceremony is usually held at the end of the winter term.

Have you ever thought about teaching economics? Would you like to improve your own understanding of basic economic theory? Did you earn an A in ECO 105 or ECO 106? If so, the DePaul Supplemental Instruction (SI) program might be for you.

What is SI?

  • SI is a student-support program that targets historically difficult courses.
  • Students in SI courses have the opportunity to attend weekly review sessions to improve their understanding of course material.
  • These small group sessions are facilitated by SI leaders, trained student mentors who focus on course content and study skills.

What is an SI Leader?

  • A student who has previously taken one of the courses SI supports
  • Someone who excels in and is excited about the subject 
  • A student who wants to help his or her peers succeed

What are the major responsibilities of an SI Leader?

  • Attending class lectures each week
  • Facilitating three one-hour review sessions each week outside of class
  • Planning for weekly sessions and communicating with students outside of class
  • Attending a training session and observation reviews
  • About nine hours of commitment per week for which SI leaders are paid a stipend

Please visit the Supplemental Instruction website for more information.
