PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The previous chapters in this book have explained the importance of supervision and the roles that supervisors play in assisting new professionals (NPs) to become successful, contributing members of the student affairs division. We have also discussed the importance of assuring that NPs receive a thorough orientation to the institution, the student affairs division, departments in the division and other units of the institution, and their positions. In chapter 3, we described some of the issues that one should consider in providing daily supervision to NPs and some techniques and strategies that can be used to enhance supervisory practice.
