Ph.D. in Community College Leadership
To meet the executive leadership workforce needs of Virginia's community colleges, Old Dominion University has developed a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Community College Leadership. The innovative quality of this program supports the university's commitment to technology-delivered learning by providing graduate leadership courses using multiple delivery modalities. Classes are provided through ODU's distance learning delivery systems, including satellite, streaming video, and video-conferencing. These modalities enable students to meet their personal and professional needs through accessible graduate education. The mission of the Community College Leadership Program is to provide high quality instruction and advising to students desiring to complete a doctoral program, and to assist graduates of the program to assume executive level leadership positions in community colleges and to provide excellent leadership for these colleges. Some of the unique community college leadership issues addressed in this program include the diversity of the student body, the role of the community college in the higher education system, the role and expectations of the communities hosting the community college, and the importance of the workforce preparation the community colleges provide for the local community.
