Dr. Sarah B. Steinberg, Founder and Principal Consultant
Former Executive Vice Provost, Johns Hopkins University
For more than 30 years, Sarah has drawn upon her broad knowledge and expertise in engineering, marketing and business strategies, as well as senior leadership in higher education, to guide colleges and related organizations to achieve revenue growth and sustainability.
After spending more than a dozen years in Chicago specializing in soil-structure interaction and advancing the use of geotextiles and other cost-saving solutions for building on marginal soils, Sarah transitioned into higher education and senior leadership at Johns Hopkins University (1993-2013).
As dean of Part-time Graduate Education in the Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Science, Sarah expanded the academic offerings to include more than a dozen fully online masters degree programs; with combined annual program enrollments exceeding 5,000 students and total annual tuition revenues of more than $50M. She had overall responsibility for academic program development, corporate partnerships, student recruitment and retention, finance/operations, and marketing.
In 2010, Sarah was named the Vice Provost for Student Affairs (admissions, financial aid, athletics, housing/dining and student life) and soon thereafter the Executive Vice Provost of Johns Hopkins University. As Executive Vice Provost, she had responsibility for university-wide strategic initiatives, including those in online and continuing/professional education. Sarah was the Chair of the University Task Force on distance learning and took the lead on many growth initiatives, including the initial Johns Hopkins University MOOC partnership with Coursera – now generating nearly $2M in annual revenue for the University.
Sarah founded Frogstone Strategies in 2014, following two-years as CEO of ShalomLearning, a non-profit organization focused on teaching Jewish education in blended online and on-site formats. She has now returned her attention to higher education, and her work with colleges and universities, to maximize their revenue growth and achieve long-term sustainability.
Sarah is a dedicated mentor to women in engineering and in higher education, and is a frequent presenter, writer, panelist, and moderator. She serves on several for-profit and non-profit boards, including the National Education Initiative, the Workforce Solutions Group, Teamify.io, ShalomLearning, and ChaseFuture.
