For the third year in a row, Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion will partner with New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to promote the Annual Diversity Conference. The Annual Diversity Conference hosts a variety of experts discussing topics relevant to recruiting, hiring, promoting, and supporting diverse candidates. The New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (NE HERC) is the region’s premiere professional development source and job board for faculty, staff, and academic executives featuring over 2,700 current jobs from member colleges, universities, teaching hospitals, research institutes, and education-related not-for-profits. Member institutions, which include Northeastern University, are distinctly committed to diversity hiring and dual-career couples, and our jobs cover the broadest spectrum of business functions, academic disciplines, and career stages.
