Form a New HERC

HERC has 19 regions across the U.S. and is growing. If your campus is interested in harnessing the collective resources in your region to recruit, hire, and retain the most diverse and talented faculty, staff, and executives it is time to consider launching a regional HERC.


It typically takes a year to launch a regional HERC, including a discovery phase, introductory meeting, advisory board formation, and implementation phase. The Central office will guide you through the process, but the beauty of regional governance is that you can customize aspects of the consortium to best serve your region. There is also an opportunity to secure matching funds to offset costs and help kick-start your regional HERC.


To learn more about a launching a HERC in your region, please complete this form and our staff will contact you to discuss the start up grant, “regional readiness,” and initial strategies.
