The Vermont Connection


til very recently, research and writing on mid-level student affairs practitioners focused narrowly on job satisfaction (Scott, 1978; Sagaria, 1986; Bogenschutz and Sagaria, 1988). This article, a scholarly personal narrative, discusses the career track and experiences of mid-level practitioners. The author proposes and discusses suggestions with regard to support for mid-level practitioners and ways of developing our thinking about these positions and professionals.
