Greater Texas HERC

The Greater Texas HERC was reformed in 2016 by merging the North Texas HERC and South Central Gulf of Texas HERC. The merger was a collaborative response to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention in the Greater Texas region. The Greater Texas HERC's 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. The University of Houston houses the HERC's administration. 

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.
