Institutional Collaboration for Diversity & Dual-Career Recruitment
Vision: To promote equity and excellence in higher education recruitment worldwide.
Mission: HERC advances the ability of member institutions to recruit and retain the most diverse and talented workforce and to assist dual-career couples.
HERC member institutions share the belief that increasing diversity and assisting dual-career couples is vital to recruiting a workforce that brings distinction and excellence to their institutions.
HERC exists to advance member institutions and the higher education community by connecting institutions with the people, shared knowledge, and partnerships that make their workplaces even more successful.
We partner with members and connect neighboring institutions to make the most of all of our resources. Working together, we power one of the largest higher education job boards, provide unrivaled dual-career assistance, and make professional development more actionable by sharing experiences and best practices.
When you make the strategic investment to join one of our regional HERC chapters, you will have more resources to recruit and retain the most diverse and talented professionals and help shape the future toward a more inclusive higher education workforce.
"Our institution has a strong interest in broadening the pool of applicants for any given position, and in the recruitment of dual-career couples. The notion that one might be able to search easily for all the faculty jobs in a region advances important institutional goals. The ease, convenience, and transparency of the HERC website all make a lot of sense."Share Your HERC Story
