FCSSGA Advisers Training (F.A.T.) Program
The FAT Program is a research-based, rigorous training program for Florida State College Student Government Advisers.
The Basic FAT curriculum was established in 2007, and consists of eight educational sessions whose topics were determined from the results from 2003’s National Study of Student Government Advisers Responsibilities, with emphasis placed on the results from Florida’s community colleges. Advisers attending all eight FAT sessions receive a certificate acknowledging this feat.
The Advanced FAT (AFAT) curriculum was developed in 2009 based on feedback from FAT participants and from a review of Student Affairs literature. With eleven topics, plus attendance and presentation requirements, the AFAT certificate is difficult to achieve. Advisers must attend the six core courses and three of the six electives, plus present a FAT or AFAT session, and attend each of FCSSGA’s five annual events.
