Abstract:This paper will explore how young professionals of color experience the workplace in student affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Specifically, I will look at how human resource development interventions like talent management and performance appraisals impact their experience. Four young professionals of color were interviewed for this study, and they shared their thoughts about leadership and career development opportunities, mentorship, and their thoughts about performance appraisal processes. The findings in the study revealed important points that the student affairs division should pay closer attention in order to continue to positively influence the experience of young professionals of color in this field.
