Luann,

This fall, we're using our URI 101 seminar (where students are grouped in
learning communities) as well as staff visits to high-risk courses to try
and organize study groups.  We'll support the study groups by offering
guidance on students on how to set agendas, structure sessions, and study
collaboratively.  we'll be in direct contact with each group, offering
tutor consultation and facilitation as needed, and encourage groups to use
our center to meet (to have ready access to tutors).

A good website on organizing study groups for mathematics students is York
University's:
