Building the capacity of campuses and communities to achieve their missions.

Transform Mid-Atlantic offers a range of in-person and web-based professional development and networking events. Bringing together civic and community engagement staff, community partners, faculty, presidents/chancellors, students and other stakeholders, these events serve to create space for discussions around the issues faced by communities, as well as opportunities for growth and improvement.

SLCE Conference

Each spring, Transform Mid-Atlantic and its member campuses host the annual Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Conference (SLCE). The SLCE Conference offers a full-day of panels, discussion, professional development, and opportunities to share success strategies among students, faculty, and staff at institutions throughout Maryland, D.C., and Delaware on the topics of community service, service-learning and civic engagement. The conference generally occurs in late-March or early-April. Interested in hosting or serving on a planning committee for the 2023-2024 SLCE Conference?
