About HERC of the Carolinas
To promote equity and excellence in higher education recruitment worldwide.
HERC advances the ability of member institutions to recruit and retain the most diverse and talented workforce and to assist dual-career couples.
Established in 2016, HERC of the Carolinas is a collaborative response of higher education institutions to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention, with a particular focus on diversity and dual-career partners. HERC of the Carolinas currently includes members across North and South Carolina.
HERC of the Carolinas is part of the national HERC network, creating the largest database of higher education and related jobs in the world. HERC brings together more than 700 colleges, universities, hospitals, research labs, government agencies, and related non- and for-profit organizations.
Our site offers a search engine that includes faculty and staff job listings at all member institutions. This search engine is free and available to anyone seeking employment in higher education, research, healthcare (medical centers), and arts and culture. The central location of job postings and regional resources as well as the website's ability to accommodate national dual-career searches distinguishes HERC of the Carolinas from other employment websites.
HERC of the Carolinas is a non-profit organization composed of a diverse group of colleges and universities as well as research, medical, and cultural institutions. Member representatives include faculty, staff, human resources professionals, institutional leaders, and faculty relations experts.

"Becoming involved with the HERC gave HR a platform to really connect with our Provost and Deans in exploring best practices for attracting and retaining the best faculty and staff, far beyond supporting the online recruitment process. It is really useful to be able to direct prospective candidates to the resources on the HERC sites, and tap into the many resources available there, especially those for dual career couples. Yet, what I value most in being a member of our HERC is developing relationships and sharing ideas with others in the field who have a similar mission."Share Your HERC Story
