FROM THE EDITOR Mid-level professionals promoted to a supervisory role often find themselves in a novel position--attending to their own professional growth and career development while having to nurture the performance and success of others. In many cases, newly promoted supervisors are still cultivating their professional identity and mastering the challenges of a more complex role as they are learning to supervise other early career professionals, office staff, graduate students, or undergraduates. Stress and anxiety naturally accompany the demands of such a job, particularly in the academic world, an environment that can require sensitivity to multicultural issues, supervision by virtual means, and navigation of an occasionally difficult, opaque hierarchy. The authors of this sourcebook blend research, personal essays, case studies, and their personal experiences to illuminate the needs and challenges of midlevel supervisors. It is the editor's hope that the perspectives and stories offered here will help all student services professionals trying to grow into new positions of responsibility.
