Is HERC Part of Your Workforce Strategy?

The Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) is a national, nonprofit consortium of over 700 higher education and affiliated employers working to advance equity and excellence in our workplaces and across the higher education workforce. Watch our video below with member interviews to learn more about HERC’s impact. 


Next Steps

Institutions can join the HERC network with an annual membership in one of 19 regional chapters or by starting a new chapter in their region. Membership dues are determined by the region.  In addition to increased visibility for their commitment to diversity and inclusion, members receive cutting-edge recruitment and training resources to support their human resources, faculty affairs, and diversity offices.
Please fill out our brief prospective member form, and one of our regional directors will be in contact with more information.

There’s never been a better time for institutional collaboration. Working together we can create systemic change and harness our collective power to develop innovative tools that can be shared and leveraged, so we are all better equipped to cultivate a talented workforce as diverse as the people we serve.
