Dual Career Resources
Helping dual-career couples is a central part of HERC’s mission.
Recent research has shown that 72% of faculty members have employed partners. (Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research, L. Schiebinger, A. Henderson, S. Gilmartin, Dual-career Academic Couples: What Universities Need to Know Stanford: 2008).

Iowa lawmakers have approved a measure that would scale back the bargaining power of unions, including those at state colleges and universities. Public-sector unions, excluding those for public safety workers such as police and firefighters, would be limited to negotiating base wages but not other issues such as benefits and staff reductions.
