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.Dr. Patrick Maille

Dr. Maille earned a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Master of Arts in History, and a Doctorate of History all from Texas Tech University. He was the first to graduate college in his family.

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.”
Dr. Maille is a published author of a book that will appear on the shelves next Spring. It’s called The Cards: The Evolution and Power of Tarot. He and his wife, Bonnie, have two children.
