FSU's internal ADAPT program was created in 2021 with the goal of not only enhancing the skillsets of campus administrative professionals but also building and strengthening a community of admins on campus. Its success has led us to branch out and offer part of the program to our vast community of regional admins during this ADAPT conference. Learn more about ADAPT.
