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).
