Abstract: This paper highlights the value of incorporating virtual mentoring opportunities within distance graduate level education programs. As future community college leaders pursue terminal degrees to strengthen their professional opportunities, it is essential that they have access to expert mentors, in addition to their course faculty to guide their leadership development. This study examines the efforts of a doctoral level degree program in community college leadership to connect graduate students with community college presidents and executive leaders throughout their duration in the program as a way to build their network, strengthen their understanding of course content, and make a connection between research and practice.
