Corporate & Non-Profit Partners

The HERC partnership program was designed to offer more  of what for- and non-profit organizations want with higher education leaders and jobseekers. More relationships.  More visibility.  More results.

The HERC partners with organizations that share HERC’s mission to support employee recruitment, diversity, and dual-career couples in higher education.

The goal of HERC’s Partnership Program is to create a forum for HERC and its partners to help one another further their missions.

HERC is uniquely positioned as a member-governed organization with a large membership and both a regional and national presence. With more than 700 member institutions in more than 30 states and the District of Columbia, HERC has an active membership base of over 5,000 higher education human resources, faculty development, and diversity officer leaders and decision makers.

Partners have opportunities to present business solutions and information about their organizations to industry leaders and show support for HERC.

HERC’s goal is to position our partners to achieve greater success in meeting the needs of HERC member institutions and to showcase partners as thought leaders in their respective industries and fields.

“When COACHE delivers our faculty diagnostics, we also deliver advice—to engage in the full portfolio of HERC resources. They bring much-needed attention to dual-career needs and a sustained commitment to improve diversity in the academy. These are issues that, our data say, are important to faculty and at the top of presidents’ and provosts’ minds. With HERC, we see an alignment of mission and a fellow agent of change to strengthen the academic workforce.”
