          According to Nivine Megahed, National Louis University (NLU) has a history of innovation. Even so, in September NLU became the first university to use the social coupon service Groupon as an enrollment vehicle. Joselyn Zivin, NLU's VP of Marketing, joined Nivine and I to talk about this innovative idea--the timing for this interview couldn't be better as NLU's first class of 17 Groupon adopters ended on Monday 12/05/2011, five of whom are exploring regular admission to NLU.

                  College and university academic departments and administrative units at times face budget cuts requiring a reduction in staff. In the current economic climate such organizational layoffs unrelated to job performance may be more prevalent. Recruitment officers at two HERC member institutions will discuss why it is important for an institution to provide transition assistance to such employees, and the different approaches taken by their universities. Presented by Paula Goodman, Director of Recruitment, Columbia University and W. Jean Tennyson, HR Consultant, University of Michigan. This webinar was originally broadcast on Dec. 3, 2009 and sponsored by the following Regional HERCs: Greater Chicago Midwest, Metro New York & Southern CT, Michigan, and New Jersey/Eastern PA/Delaware.

                    • Hiring Reconsidered: Understanding the Candidate's Perspective

                      What makes faculty candidates accept or decline offers? Despite the increasing attention that academia has given to search and hire processes, we still know relatively little about what actually drives a candidate’s decision once an offer is made. In this webinar, researchers from the University of Virginia will share the results from a candidate declination and acceptance survey that sheds light on why faculty refuse or accept offers, whether or not these factors vary by race and/or ethnicity, and what the implications are for search committees and administrators. Presented by Dr. Gertrude Fraser, Vice Provost for Faculty Recruitment & Retention, Maggie Harden, Director of the Institute for Faculty Advancement, and Jesse Rine, Research Associate, Center for Effective Teaching in Higher Education, University of Virginia. This webinar was originally broadcast on April 28, 2011 and was sponsored by the following Regional HERCs: Greater Chicago Midwest, Metro New York & Southern CT, Michigan, New Jersey/Eastern PA/Delaware, St. Louis Regional, and the Upper Midwest.
