Announcing HERDI West

HERDI is growing! Higher Education Research and Development Institute (HERDI) continues to fulfill our vision to link more higher education institutions with the business community that serves them. On behalf of the HERDI team, I am pleased to announce the establishment of HERDI West. Our newly appointed Executive Directors are Ding Jo Currie, who was previously the Chancellor of Coast Colleges in California, and Pamela Walker, who was previously the Executive Vice Chancellor of Education Programs and Services at the California Community College System. We've drafted the HERDI West Advisory Board member page and in the coming weeks, we will be adding headshots and bios and announcing more members.

The first meeting of HERDI West will be a virtual event on July 27, 2023. Its first in-person Think Tank event will be hosted on November 14 and 15, 2023, just prior to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges meeting, in Indian Wells, CA.
