In addition to supervising all of the residence halls, Rubin will supervise the resident hall coordinators and resident assistants as well as coordinate their placement, assignments and training. Rubin has developed an abundance of creative ideas in how he would like to restructure the residence life department, “I want to give the department a theme which will act as a catalyst in making it more student- focused.”

Rubin earned his master’s and bachelor’s degrees in history and a master’s certificate in cultural resource management from WVU. He previously served as an area advisor/residence hall coordinator and as a personal assistant to the dean of students at WVU; he also interned with the West Virginia State Archives.

Rubin has published several works which include, “The History of Boreman Hall South,” “The History of the Mountaineer Statue” and “The Resident Faculty Leader Program.”

He is a member of the Association of College & University Housing Officers-International, the Mid-Atlantic Association of College & University Housing Officers, the NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the American College Personnel Association and is an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America.

“My goal is to concentrate on helping students get their freshman year right, thereby giving them the tools needed to succeed and to help them understand why academics are such an important part of living in the halls and how that equates to being an extension of the academic classroom,” said Rubin.
