The University of Rochester is a member of the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium of Upstate New York.

Developed in 2006, the Upstate New York HERC is a collaborative response of member institutions to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention. Of particular interest to the Upstate New York HERC is finding effective ways to assist the spouses and partners of faculty and staff to secure area employment and ways to address issues of faculty and staff diversity.

A vital aspect of the Upstate New York HERC is the web-based search engine that includes faculty and staff job listings at all member institutions. This search engine is free and available to anyone seeking employment in higher education. The central location of job postings and regional resources as well as the website’s ability to accommodate dual-career searches distinguishes Upstate New York HERC from other employment web sites.

The Upstate New York HERC is composed of a diverse group of public and independent schools, colleges, and universities. Member representatives include faculty, staff, human resources professionals, institutional leaders, and faculty relations experts.
