Keenyn McFarlane, former director of budget for the Division of Students and Enrollment, returned to Brandeis on April 5 to serve as the university’s vice president for enrollment, according to a statement from Jean Eddy, senior vice president for students and enrollment.

Frank Urso, who left the university in February, used to hold McFarlane’s position and currently works at Harvard, where he previously worked before coming to Brandeis.

McFarlane has worked in federal government for the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Department of Homeland Security since leaving Brandeis, and said he was looking forward to interacting with and listening to students.

“I believe in the Brandeis student. That’s why I’m back,” McFarlane said. “I’m really looking forward to resuming a meaningful relationship with the university community.”

The Office of Enrollment’s work includes interacting with admissions to attract new students, but it also helps manage student life
