Inclusive Supervision in Student Affairs provides a new, action-oriented model that addresses what supervisors should do to create more inclusive environments for all staff and to help inform socially just practice. Grounded in theory and research and framed through the lens of continuous professional development and personal growth, this book helps professionals at all levels develop effective leadership skills that demonstrate multicultural competence. Providing a conceptual model and self-assessment tool to enhance Student Affairs professionals’ preparation for supervision, this book also helps readers reflect upon their own capacity to enact an inclusive supervisory approach through the use of case studies and end-of-chapter questions.
