HERS (Higher Education Resource Services) is an educational non-profit providing leadership and management development for women in higher education administration. Since 1972 HERS has served the higher education community, preparing more than 4300 women faculty and administrators for leadership roles. Today HERS Alumnae are active on over 1200 campuses across the USA, South Africa, Botswana, India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Micronesia, and Caribbean region. The campuses served include public and private institutions in all Carnegie categories. Currently, over 500 HERS alumnae now serve in senior level positions.
Our sister program, HERS-SA, provides an annual academy for women from across Africa. We are particularly proud that Her Excellency Naledi Pandor, South Africa's Minister of Education, is a HERS alumna. A special HERS Archives project has allowed us to collect material about these programs and other information about the status of professional women in higher education. Through other HERS Connections, we continue to work with other organizations to advance women leaders and support their contributions to achieving excellence and equity throughout our academic institutions.
