Although an important function within higher education, many professionals are ill prepared to provide high quality supervision, especially to entry-level and new professionals who require such a broad range of nurturing. Supervision has received little attention in the literature even though practitioners spend substantial time on it.

The Student Affairs Mid-Level Administrator: The Power and Strength of Leading from the Middle

And yet, they do not have as many professional development opportunities designed for their specific needs as entry level professionals and senior-level leaders do. In this interactive session, we will explore the knowledge, skills, and abilities of successful mid-level administration as well as share advice on ways to chart your own success as a mid-level administrator in student affairs.
