Grand Valley joins MI-HERC
Date: January 28, 2010
Twenty-five public and private Michigan colleges and universities now participate in Michigan Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (MI-HERC) to share information and resources to attract and retain talented faculty and staff.
With a growing number of two income couples, hiring departments often struggle when they pursue a talented worker whose spouse or partner is in a field where they might not have an opening. Often they need to look to other potential employers within the regions or risk having the selected candidate decline the offer.
The consortium is designed to make it easier to recruit and retain talented faculty and staff by helping spouses/partners find openings at nearby 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.
The Michigan HERC institutions are: Alma College, Central Michigan University, College for Creative Studies, Cornerstone University, Davenport University, Delta College, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Valley State University, Henry Ford Community College, MSU, Mott Community College, Oakland Community College, Oakland University, Saginaw Valley State University, University of Detroit Mercy, U-M Ann Arbor, U-M Dearborn, U-M Flint, Washtenaw Community College, Wayne County Community College District, Wayne State, West Shore Community College and Western Michigan University.
