Higher Education Recruitment Consortium
|Recruiting Outstanding Faculty|
|National job search generator|
The Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) is a non-profit consortium of higher education institutions in the United States.
The first HERC was established in Northern California in 2000 with Stanford, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of California at Santa Cruz as lead members, with the goal of allowing colleges and universities to collaborate on the recruitment of faculty, staff, and executives. There are currently eleven regional HERCs in the United States, consisting of over 550 campuses in 22 states and the District of Columbia.
The National HERC was established in 2007 to support the independent but affiliated regional HERCs. It is a program of the Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The National HERC is governed by an Advisory Board composed of the National HERC Director, ex officio, regional HERC directors, a member representative, and a member representative alternate from each regional HERC.
HERC maintains a regional, web-based search engine with listings for faculty and staff job openings at all member institutions, including a dual-career couple search option.
