Steve SobaConcluding an extensive national search, Muskingum University announced today that Boston-native Steven Soba, an experienced leader in enrollment management, has been chosen to lead recruitment, admission, financial services and promotions at Muskingum as vice president for enrollment and marketing. Soba officially began June 1.

“Our search generated tremendous interest from very qualified candidates, but it was clear that Steve’s qualifications were truly unique,” said Muskingum University President Susan S. Hasseler. “Steve is extremely enthusiastic and brings an entrepreneurial spirit to his work that we are confident will help Muskingum continue to advance and thrive well into the future.”

Soba brings more than 20 years of work in higher education to his new position at Muskingum. In his most recent role, vice president for enrollment management at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Soba was responsible for setting the vision for student recruitment at both the undergraduate and graduate levels that achieved goals aligned with the institution’s strategic plan.

Prior to Moravian, Soba spent 11 years at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, New Hampshire, serving as assistant vice president of marketing and student recruitment and director of undergraduate admission. His experience in higher education goes back to his first job as an admission counselor for his alma mater, Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island.

“Regardless of whether you’re talking to faculty, staff, alumni or students, it becomes immediately clear that Muskingum has a compelling story to share with the world,” Soba said. “In a challenging climate for higher education, Muskingum delivers quality, invests in its campus and in new student opportunities, and has been recognized as one of the best values in the midwest. Muskingum’s affordable excellence is a testament to the work of its dedicated leaders, faculty and staff.”

Soba earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Salve Regina and continued studies at the University of Vermont. Joining him in the move are his partner, Melissa, and golden retriever, Teddy.
