What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Presidents' Institute

The CCMA Presidents’ Institute serves as a platform for the collaboration between higher education, K12, and community partners to address issues critical to Maryland, DC, and Delaware.

Future Presidents’ Institutes will convene the region’s presidents, superintendents, and other leaders in a conversation about the structural and systemic issues impacting education in our region, and how civic and community engagement could enhance college, career, and civic readiness for K-12 and higher education students. This important work can only be done through the collective contributions of our members, partners, and supporters.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

About Us: Transform Mid-Atlantic (formerly known as Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic) is a convener, a connector, and a collaborator. It brings together institutions of higher education with civic organizations and students to impact change in the areas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. By facilitating hands-on service-learning and sharing of best practices, Transform Mid-Atlantic supports grassroots change that resonates at every level and inspires the next generation of leaders, scholars, global citizens, and advocates.

Purpose: Transform Mid-Atlantic brings together institutions of higher education with civic organizations to impact necessary change in the areas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion by equipping and engaging the next generation of leaders, scholars, global citizens, and advocates.

Value Statement: Transform Mid-Atlantic connects the needs of its regional community partners with the resources of its member institutions to enhance the academic and civic experience while preparing students to become engaged global citizens.

Stakeholders: Apart from Transform Mid-Atlantic's Board, staff members, and AmeriCorps VISTA leaders and members, we work with the following groups to accomplish our mission and purpose:
- Institutional leadership
- Provost/faculty (academic – service learning would be part of the curriculum, conversations, workshops, series)
- Student/Community Affairs administrators (CEP – community engaged practitioners)
- Community organizations
- Corporations
- Future and current AmeriCorps VISTA members

Generally, our strategies to accomplish our mission are composed of programs, initiatives, advocacy, and grant opportunities that:
- Connect institutions, people, and programs.
- Develop global citizens and create just communities.
- Create thought leadership in the space of civic and community engagement.
- Convene communities of practice and collective action within the higher education sector.
- Call for decision makers to increase the number and quality of resources available to schools, higher education, and community partners to combat poverty and create increasingly just and equitable communities.
