Through our topic of “The Great Resignation: Race and Retention of BIPOC Staff within the Division of Student Affairs” we hope to better understand how the racial identities of student affairs practitioners impact their professional experience. We decided to execute this project by sending out a questionnaire to current, and past professional staff at UVM who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person Of Color). Each questionnaire was tailored with questions that could provide us with a clearer insight into the experience of these professionals, while maintaining their privacy and honoring their stories. We gave professionals options regarding what level of anonymity they would like while participating in the survey in order to provide them with a safe space to share any impactful experiences that they may not feel comfortable sharing otherwise.
