Robin Rubin earned both her MSW and BSW from FAU.

Robin is an avid volunteer, and very involved and well respected in the greater Boca Raton philanthropic community. Active in her effort to foster and support the local community, she has served on the foundation board for Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach County, the executive board of the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center, South Palm Beach Jewish Federation, and Norman and Ruth Rales Jewish Family Services. She also serves on the Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Go-Pink challenge committee and on the Women’s Advisory Council for the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute. She is also passionately involved at Rales Jewish Family Services and in their yearly Reflections of Hope Luncheon. The mission of that luncheon is to educate the community and end the stigma of mental illness.

Currently she teaches the Social Work and Positive Well Being course in both the MSW and BSW programs at Florida Atlantic University. Professor Rubin knows the skills and tools necessary to living a flourishing life and her passion is to teach people how to build their reservoir of positive emotions, work with negative emotions, increase their resilience, and create nurturing relationships. As an alumna of FAU, she is the driving force for the annual Phyllis Sandler Heart of Social Work Event that raises funds for student scholarships. Ms. Rubin also founded the Community Advisory Board for the Sandler School of Social Work in 2011 and continues to serve on the board as the faculty representative.

She has two adult sons, Jordan and Jonathan; a daughter by luck, Bella; and two grandbabies – Sarati, her granddaughter, and Eitan, her grandson. Robin lives in Boca Raton with her wonderful husband, Gary and their two mini labradoodles.
