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).

    Academics can effectively say no to requests for their time and commitment by suggesting someone else who may be able to help and creating their own guidelines for when to say no, writes Harvard University professor Robin Bernstein in this commentary. Saying no can create space to say yes to projects and commitments that enhance a career, she notes. The Chronicle of Higher Education (free content) (3/19)
