Until now, professional literature in higher education and student affairs failed to address the issue of supervision in a comprehensive and systematic manner. By building on the staffing model developed by Roger B. Winston and Don G. Creamer, Supervising New Professionals in Student Affairs provides readers with a thorough review of the theory, processes, and skills necessary to be an effective supervisor. Six scholar-practitioners present approaches and strategies to aptly guide personnel within the context of personal and professional development and institutional goals and priorities. Special attention is given to supervisory practices with new professionals and interns in the field. This text covers all aspects of effective supervision of student affairs personnel, which is critical to meeting the needs of higher education institutions and essential to professional enrichment.
