Dear Friends,

The new academic year is upon us! We are looking forward to this year with renewed passion, especially as we celebrate our new Transform Mid-Atlantic (TMA) name and logo. Our work connecting campuses and communities continues to grow as we meet the ongoing challenges of our times. Please join us in this important work. Please read below about all the new initiatives that TMA is launching to support our partner campuses and communities.

In Service,

The TMA Team
