HERDI represents the national organization of Higher Education Research and Development Institute. Its national Advisory Board consists of more than 100 Community College and Independent College Presidents and Chancellors and other leaders who meet with Client partners to achieve the HERDI Mission: to provide better products and services for students, faculty and staff for America’s Colleges by facilitating frank and critical dialogue between Community College and Independent College leaders and the business community that seeks to serve them.
HERDI has four separate Divisions:
HERDI National focuses on Community Colleges throughout the U. S. It meets twice a year in spring and fall, preceding the annual meetings of the
American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT).
HERDI South also focuses on Community Colleges and serves 11 southern states with specific regional objectives and meets once a year in December, prior to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
HERDI Innovate focuses on Community Colleges and provides counsel for smaller start-up companies with specific needs. It meets virtually and occasionally in conjunction with the previous two meetings.
HERDI IC focuses on select Independent colleges throughout the U. S. and meets prior to the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) annual meeting.
NEW: In addition, all HERDI Divisions now provide opportunities for VIRTUAL panels throughout the year, as needed, at Client request.
Dates of all meetings are listed under Think-Tank Sessions
