The Higher Education Recruitment Consortium

The Michigan Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) provides the largest higher education job board in Michigan. The consortium is designed to make it easier to recruit or retain talented faculty and staff by helping spouses find openings at nearby colleges or universities within the same region, to create networking opportunities and share best practices among member institutions through regular meetings, and to reduce costs through joint purchasing arrangements.

In 2007, Michigan’s three URC presidents jointly invited the state’s other public and private colleges and universities to form the Michigan HERC. Soon afterwards, Michigan HERC launched with 24 public and private colleges and universities in the state, and connected to a national network of higher education institutions. Today, Michigan HERC has 27 member institutions, including community colleges, 4-year colleges and universities, affiliated teaching hospitals, and research labs and institutes.
