Or mission if to share information and resources to help members recruit and retain outstanding and diverse faculty, administrators and staff.
We will accomplish this through collaboration, innovation, and mutual investment.
We will engage in activities to improve applicant pools and seek solutions to the dual-career challenges.
Here is a view of our presence on the national website.
We are included on the page of regional HERCs and more importantly we are found in the footer of every HERC page national or regional.
If you don’t bookmark our site, this is an excellent shortcut.
Searchable National Directory of Member Institutions
All of our member institutions are also listed and searchable on the national directory map
Promo materials
Professional development
As many of you know our new website is live at ohwpawvherc.org
The site has seven main pages to provide information about our HERC, our members, people who may be interested in joining, and specific regional information for jobseekers.
The regional information is under development.
Member Resources also contains a drop down menu of seven pages of more targeted information
Our Footer and Directory
This is what the footer looks like on our web page.
Featured member logos rotate through all 33 randomly
Note the Member directory link in the footer.
Our Member Directory
When you search our directory page it shows a map and an alphabetical list of members.
This is what the search page looks like.
It can search keywords, zip codes, states and institutions among many other things, and displays the distances between job postings.
Member Institutional Profile Appears next to your posted jobs
An institutional profile exists for each member and is displayed in a right sidebar next to each job you post.
This profile was added for you based on what was submitted to our office. It is editable by you on you member login page.
Member Enhanced Profile
The enhanced member profile is something each institution creates on their own to provide additional information to jobseekers.
There are a dozen categories of information you may choose to include and space for photos.
In this example in addition to About us, Carnegie Mellon has chosen to highlight Awards, Culture, Diversity, Vision and a Video.
The open jobs link is automatically generated when you create even one page for this profile.
Professional Development
Now I would like to go over goals that we have as an organization for the next year.
Our focus will be on increasing membership, increasing diversity and providing professional development opportunities.
Establish strategy for Associate members and regional partners
Targeted recruiting to institutions in order to provide a minimum of a three members inside a 90 minute drive
There are 2 membership goals
First to establish a strategy for associate members and regional partners like corporations and non profits.
The second is to be strategic in our recruitment so that members all have a minimum of 3 institutions within a 90 minute drive to work cooperatively with.
It will be part of the work of the membership committee to create priorities. If you are interested in furthering this goal please see Joe Vitale from KSU about joining the committee.
HBCU’s (West Virginia State, Wilberforce University)
Associate’s Colleges
Targeted recruitment outreach per Advisory Board priorities
e.g. Veterans, LGBT, Person’s with Disabilities, Women in STEM, etc.
The second goal will concern increasing diversity in the kinds of institutions represented. For example our members include only one HBCU and 4 associates colleges.
The second priority will be targeted recruitment as directed by the advisory board
One networking meeting in each cluster before June 30, 2015
One webinar before June 30, 2015
The final priority for the year will be the establishment of the professional development resources.
Again driven by membership feedback and advisory board direction.
We would like to have one meeting of some kind in each cluster, and at least one member webinar before June 30, 2015
Leverage expertise of our members with workshops and webinars
Potential categories, not exhaustive
Recruitment (e.g. Veterans, Immigration Issues , Faculty Search Committees)
Dual-Career Support (Networking, Cultivating Corporate Partners)
Faculty or Staff Development
The professional development is being designed to leverage the expertise of our members. You will receive an email following this meeting asking for your willingness to present a webinar or cluster meeting workshop on topics of interest. There is also a form in your folder you can submit.
Reviewing past webinars offered nationally and regionally, I have created topic categories that you might consider.
Again we need both your feedback about the kinds of resources you would like offered, and the kinds of resources you can contribute.
