When Morgan State University began offering its community college leadership doctoral program online this fall, it joined a crowded field of institutions offering terminal degrees to future leaders of two-year institutions. Given its record of success in graduating minority leaders, the online expansion of Morgan State's Community College Leadership Doctoral Program (CCLDP) will likely strengthen the pipeline of minority administrators ready to fill an expected leadership gap at schools serving a disproportionate number of African-American and Latino students. Founded by Dr. Christine Johnson McPhail, an emerita professor at Morgan State who this year received the American Association of Community Colleges' (AACC) National Leadership Award, CCLDP has graduated 91 percent of its students--75 percent of whom are African-American. CCLDP's expansion online may prove vital in addressing some of the problems projected by a 2008 Iowa State University study predicting a dearth of leaders needed to replace retiring Baby Boomers.
