TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Student Government “A&M Administration” is forming an Academic Advisory Council (AAC) of Rattlers to represent their respective college, school, or institute.
To improve communication amongst the students of Florida A&M University, Student Government Association will be instituting a council of students empowered and entrusted with the responsibility of conveying the issues, concerns, interests, and needs of their college, school, or institute to SGA. The Academic Advisory Council (AAC) is a council of representatives from each academic unit at Florida A&M University charged with bridging the gap amongst students and their elected leaders.
Each representative will be responsible for relaying matters concerning their college or school to the AAC, and will serve and be recognized as it’s representative. The council will meet regularly with the President and Vice-President in order to advise SGA and campus administrators in the execution of the best interests of all Rattlers.
“This and similar initiatives are aligned with the Administration’s theme of ‘Securing the Foundation of a New Era’, by enhancing communication networks between students and their elected officials, as well as the Board of Trustees,” said Andrew Collins, Student Body President and University Trustee. “This group of students will be the direct advisors to the Student Body President and Vice President, and will help to ensure the academic and welfare issues of each and every student are heard and addressed.”
The SGA Department of Academic Affairs is now accepting applications for the Academic Advisory Council, located in the SGA offices on the second floor of the Student Union Building. The deadline for submission is February 6, at 5 p.m. For additional information, please contact SGA at (850) 599-3624.
