Mission

The Florida Institute for the Advancement of Teaching (FIAT) provides practical, research-based, and scalable solutions for Florida’s PK-20 educational system by recruiting, preparing, and retaining quality educators in sufficient numbers for Florida schools. FIAT offers three innovative programs - Good FIT for students in any major who would like to explore teaching as a career; SMaRT for juniors and/or first-semester seniors to gain more experience in the classroom by substituting with a mentor; and the capstone program, AIT, for final semester seniors.
