Predictors of Professional Identity Development for Student Affairs Professionals
Pittman, Edward C.; Foubert, John D.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n1 p13-25 2016
This study examined whether professional involvement, supervision style, and mentoring predicted the professional identity of graduate students and new professionals in student affairs. Results of the study show that all three independent variables predicted the professional identity development of graduate students. Supervision style of a supervisor, but not mentoring or professional involvement, significantly predicted the professional identity development of new professionals. Implications and recommendations for future research and student affairs practice are provided.
