dc.description.abstractDuring February 2009, with the endorsement of the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I), a sample of new professionals completed the Student Affairs Supervisory Skill Learning Inventory (SASSLI), the data collection instrument for this investigation. The purpose of this study was to develop a list of critical supervisory skills for supervisors in student affairs. Further, the study determined which of those skills first-year, full-time, post-master’s new professionals learned during their graduate preparation programs through classroom instruction, supervised practice experiences, and self-taught learning. Additionally, the study identified the skills that new professionals listed as critical to effectively supervise staff members. Several statistically significant findings at both the p<0.05 and p<0.001 alpha levels were identified based on performed independent samples t tests between various demographic variables and the twelve scale scored variables that developed from the instrument. Findings support the need for a more systematic approach to educating student affairs master’s students about the construct of supervision and supervision skills through classroom instruction, supervised practice experiences, and self-taught activities.
