"We are delighted with our HERC membership. We have seen increased numbers of applications for our positions, but more importantly, the quality of our applicants has also increased. I believe this is due to the increased national exposure for our positions. On the staff side, the website is attracting talented professionals with a specific interest in higher education. The networking and sharing of best practices among our member institutions is also invaluable."
