Office of Enrollment Management

Michael Keane, Ph.D.



Mike Keane joined Enrollment Management in April 2011 as a Senior Research Associate. Mike graduated from LMU in 2004 with Bachelor's degrees in History and Latin, and earned his Doctorate in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame in May 2010.  In addition to his studies, while at Notre Dame he worked for the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy and taught a course on Research Methods to undergraduates. Before returning to LMU, he served as a Research Scientist in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness at Kaplan University from June 2010 to April 2011.

Mike’s academic research focused on political behavior – specifically, the role of race, ethnicity, life satisfaction, and small-group composition in the development of political attitudes. Three of his co-authored articles have been published in peer-reviewed journals, including the American Journal of Political Science.

As the Senior Research Associate in Enrollment Management, Mike collects and analyzes data and prepares reports on a wide variety of different topics across undergraduate admissions, student registration, and financial aid. In particular, he performs analysis that contributes to the recruitment and enrollment of new students, projections of future-term enrollments and financial aid budgets, and other research projects that help Enrollment Management ensure student success from enrollment to graduation and beyond.
