Work/Life Balance for Faculty
Lehigh is committed to helping faculty members balance the responsibilities of their professional and private lives. The ever changing demands, and the university's efforts to face these challenges, have evolved over the past decade and continue into the future as we work for greater flexibility in the tenure clock and faculty careers.
Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC)
Lehigh University is a member of the NJ/Eastern PA/DE HERC, a collaborative response to the challenges of academic recruitment and retention and is specifically geared toward finding effective ways to assist the partners/spouses of faculty and staff to secure employment and to address issues of faculty and staff diversity.
Headquartered at Princeton University, HERC members include a range of colleges and universities. A vital aspect of the HERC is the Web-based search engine that includes faculty and staff job listings at all member institutions. The central location of job postings and regional resources as well as the Web site's ability to accommodate dual-career searches distinguishes the HERC from other employment Web sites.
