The Greater Texas HERC was reformed in 2016 by merging the North Texas HERC and South Central Gulf of Texas HERC. The merge was a collaborative response to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention in the Greater Texas region. Our core values include excellence and diversity in the Texas higher education workforce and the promotion of work/life balance through assistance to dual career couples.re
Who We Are
The Greater Texas HERC is a non-profit organization composed of a diverse group of colleges and universities, doctoral and master’s institutions, four-year colleges, and community colleges. Member representatives include institutional leaders, faculty, academic and faculty affairs professionals, human resources managers and administrators, diversity officers, dual career consultants, and work-life personnel.
Greater Texas HERC is governed by an Advisory Board drawn from its member institutions and administered by the Greater Texas HERC Director.
"Harvard University has been a supporter of HERC since its creation. To date we have measured the organization's effectiveness for us, and our membership has definitely returned more to the University when compared to our annual investment. In less than one year, Harvard saved nearly $35,000 in advertising discounts. In addition to recruiting some strong talent, we have collaborated with colleagues from peer institutions on a number of activities, including diversity-based forums, vendor negotiations, and membership meetings. HERC has also helped accompanying spouses and partners of faculty and administrators with their recruitment needs."Share Your HERC Story
