Cabrini College added a new member to its administration team. Dr. Steven Feld was made Cabrini’s new vice president for finance as well as the college’s new treasurer. Feld was selected after a national search was conducted. He replaced Robert Allison as interim vice president for finance.
Stepping down from his previous position at Newberry College in South Carolina on Feb. 29, Feld became a part of the Cabrini staff the very next day. Feld had formerly served at Newberry College as the chief financial officer.
At Newberry, Feld was responsible for starting the Habit of the Heart. This is Newberry’s Quality Enhancement Program. Feld also was responsible for overseeing all of the business processes at Newberry. According to Newberry’s website, Feld has also been praised for the energy and leadership skills he displayed at the college by acting President John Hudgens in a statement regarding Feld’s departure from the school.
Feld is an expert in higher education, one of the many traits he will be bringing with him to Cabrini. President Marie Angelella George has stated her trust in Feld for what he will bring to the campus.
“Steve’s understanding of Cabrini College’s mission and his desire to be a part of our vision for the future are evident,” George said.
This is evident in the hopes Feld wants to apply to use in his financial service to the students.
“Steve brings a great deal of international expertise and an entrepreneurial acumen that will serve our college well,” George said.
Despite moving schools, Feld’s overall goal remains the same. This is to use his financial experience to help give students the best education possible so they can in return make a difference in the world. With a goal like this, it would only make sense that Feld would be the perfect choice for president of finance and treasurer here at Cabrini. His mission fits that of Cabrini’s perfectly, where the goal is to inspire students to use their college education to do something extraordinary in the world.
Feld is a graduate of the University of New Mexico. There, he earned his bachelor of science in mechanical engineering. Besides this, Feld has a long list of past experience. These range from serving as the executive director of executive education at the Robert H. Smith School of Business to serving on the Higher Education Management faculty at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
Feld’s achievements span globally. Besides working in just the United States, Feld has also worked in such countries as Switzerland, China and Tunisia. He has helped these countries in developing the Smith Executive MBA. Feld has also taught at Penn’s Graduate School of Education. These are just a few of Feld’s achievements.
