Due to the large number of retiring community college leaders and the lack of skilled replacements, it has been predicted that there will be community college leadership crisis. Educators question where these new leaders will emerge from, what skills they will have and will they be able to meet the leadership requirements of community college. This research study investigated the levels of leadership skills as perceived by mid-level Pennsylvania community colleges administrators and how they align with the AACC leadership competencies recommended for mid-level administrators to progress into senior community college leadership positions. Using leadership competencies recommended by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), mid-level administrators were asked to assess their competency levels, the importance of the competency levels to their current position and if they felt they needed additional training to accomplish their career goals. In addition, mid-level administrators were asked about their career goals and the types of additional training they felt they needed to improve their leadership competency level and accomplish their career goals.
