Ms. Heather Hirsch is the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations for the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies (HRI). In this role, she works with foundation and corporate partners, as well as our faculty and staff, to foster meaningful engagement to further the Mission and Vision of HRI, and to advance the overall Islander Impact of Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi. Prior to joining HRI at TAMU-CC, Ms. Hirsch spent her time with Texas A&M AgriLife Research building public-private partnerships, and she continues to bridge the communication gap between academia and industry partners. Previously, she worked to provide a point of contact to assist companies in navigating the academic landscape, so public-private partnerships could thrive and could see discoveries become technologies.
