The purpose of this quantitative correlational research study was to analyze the relationship between students’ perception of faculty competencies, leadership skills, and student academic success and performance at a two-year community college in Southern California. The results indicated a high correlation between the instructors’ competencies and skills as perceived by the students and the students’ academic performance. The highest correlation was between the leadership competencies and the students’ academic performance. Nearly all participants agreed to a certain level that the four faculty competencies, technical competencies, teaching, leadership, and context knowledge, contribute to the learners’ academic performance in an online environment.
