The success of the faculty and staff at OPSU is directly connected to the success of our graduates. It’s amazing to look at our seniors and then think back about how they were as freshmen and see how much they have grown.

It’s amazing to look at our seniors and then think back about how they were as freshmen and see how much they have grown.”

Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Brad Duren, commented, “Dr. Maille has been a dear friend and colleague since he arrived at OPSU in 2005. He is an excellent scholar, and students respect him for his ability to challenge and encourage them in their study of history. We are very fortunate to have him on our faculty, and I count it a blessing to know him and work with him.”
