Leadership for Transform Mid-Atlantic is provided by our Board. This group guides the direction of Transform Mid-Atlantic and is the decision-making body.

The Senior Advisory Group for Engagement (SAGE) is a group which provides the main link from Transform Mid-Atlantic to each member institution.

The Presidents’ Council is made up of the president of each of our member institutions. Transform Mid-Atlantic gathers the Presidents Council once a year, usually at our Presidents’ Institute or Presidents and Superintendents Dinner.

Transform Mid-Atlantic Board

Transform Mid-Atlantic is governed by the presidents of member institutions.  The Board guides the direction and development of the organization and makes final determinations on all aspects of the organization.

The Board is comprised primarily of college and university presidents representing a geographically and institutionally diverse group of campuses, as well as several community leaders. The Board meets at least three times a year to set organizational goals, priorities, and policies.
