Supported by deeply experienced advisors

The Transformational Partnerships Fund benefits from a diverse group of advisors who bring substantive knowledge and relevant experience in higher education.

Our advisors share a deep commitment to higher education and are motivated by a common desire for student success. Each brings specialized experience in the opportunity and challenge of partnerships. Advisors are available to provide advice and counsel to TPF’s manager and funders. They are not directly involved in reviewing grant recommendations or approvals.

“Exploring a merger or strategic partnership is difficult for leaders even when it has the potential to be transformational for the students and institutions involved. The Transformational Partnerships Fund is a welcome resource for colleges and universities interested in taking the first step.”

—David Chard
Dean ad interim of Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development
