Doctoral programs have been evolving over recent years. One factor in that evolution has been the growing number of students seeking access to advanced study while continuing in full-time employment. Recent developments in distance and online education support the offering of doctoral programs at a distance but entail additional challenges around the initiation of distance students into the wider academic community in ways equivalent to those available to traditional on-campus students. One possible response is the development of online communities that support equivalent interactions to what might be experienced in an on-campus doctoral program. This paper describes the beginnings of such a community and the early efforts to initiate and maintain momentum.
