In this final chapter of the book Professional and Support Staff in Higher Education, we reflect on the contributions that this book brings to the literature regarding professional and support staff in higher education. We briefly explore the representation of professional staff included in the book and discuss key findings of a content analysis based on the concluding sections of all chapters in this book. The findings reveal strong thematic overlaps and recurring concerns that transcend the topics grouped in the book. Based on these findings and gaps in the literature, we then discuss some opportunities for further inquiry and provide some key recommendations for future work in this field.
