Barbara Fabe

Senior Advisor, Human Resources

Barbara Fabe is senior advisor to the College and the President, Human Resources, and the Board of Trustees. She is a key player in promoting the mission of the College as a Lasallian institution to all faculty and staff.

Fabe started at Manhattan College 33 years ago. Prior to working higher education, Fabe spent many years serving New York City’s hospitals, first as employment manager at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx and then as assistant director of personnel at the former Beekman Downtown Hospital. There, she became the youngest person in any New York City hospital promoted to director of personnel. Shortly after, Fabe moved on to Doctors Hospital in Manhattan as vice president for human resources, taking on administrative on-call responsibilities.

Fabe earned her B.A. in history from Hofstra University before beginning her career in human relations — a field she says she has enjoyed since day one!
