Dear Friends,

We hope your fall semester is off to a great start. Ours is! Since renaming and rebranding in early summer, Transform Mid-Atlantic has been busy planning for the 2022-23 season and exploring exciting new opportunities! With new staff, new member institutions, new initiatives, and an optimistic view of the future of just, equitable, and sustainable institutions and communities, we are truly committed to transformation! Our new website is well underway, and we encourage you to take a look. You may not know all that we do, but it's a lot! Take a moment to like our Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn pages too.

We look forward to seeing you virtually and in-person at one or more of our upcoming events.

In Service,

The TMA Team


JEDI-CCE Institute
Thursday, October 20th
9:00 am-3:30 pm

Campuses are encouraged to sign up for TMA's inaugural, in-person, JEDI-CCE Institute on Thursday, October 20, 9:00 am-3:30 pm, on the campus of Morgan State University. This important day-long event will bring campus teams together with the goal of strengthening and advancing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) through Civic and Community Engagement (CCE). Specifically, campus team members will: 

  • Assess and evaluate their current JEDI-CCE initiatives; 

  • Develop an action plan for their campuses and community partnerships; 

  • Strengthen existing practices at their campuses through use of the JEDI-CCE Institutionalization Rubric; 

  • Reflect on what they have been learning and set measurable goals for the 2022-23 year. 

Take this opportunity to catalyze action on your campus by participating in this Institute! To ensure a meaningful event where teams can work, interact, and speak with members of TMA’s Equity Task Force, we are limiting registration to 10 campuses.

Stories of Service Podcast

In her year of service as a TMA VISTA member, Kate McGeehan produced three "Stories of Service" podcasts. Episode I has dropped! Kate and TMA Associate Director Anthony Wagner spoke with Salma Rashid, who served for two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA member at the Friendship Charter School in Washington, D.C. In this interview, Salma reflects on the people and experiences that inspired her to spend two years engaged in national service as a VISTA member and shares how her service has prepared her for her graduate school, a career, and a life of engaged citizenship.


TMA is thrilled to announce that we are partnering with The Facing Project this fall! Projects taking place on two of our member campuses - "The Good Life Project" under the direction of Dr. Harold Morales at Morgan State University and "The Princess Anne Town-Gown Divide: Expectations and Experiences" under the direction of Dr. Cynthia Cravens and Dr. Amy Hagenrater-Gooding -  have been selected to participate in this innovative approach to creating a more understanding and empathetic world through stories that inspire action.
