Panelist Bio


Cecile Guin, Ph.D., LCSW
Director of LSU's Office of Social Service Research and Development

Cecile has served as the Director of the Office of Social Service Research and Development (OSSRD), LSU School of Social Work, since 1996. She began working for LSU in 1993 as a funding consultant and Associate Professor of Research. Prior to moving to Baton Rouge in 1996, Dr. Guin maintained a private business that provided grant writing, evaluation and consultation to non-profit and governmental agencies.

In her capacity as Director of OSSRD, Dr. Guin focuses heavily upon external fund development and actively solicits opportunities for various grants and contracts that address many of the social problems inherent to Louisiana. In particular, she develops programs and seeks funding aimed at interrupting the pathway to delinquency, crime and other forms of non productivity that claim so many Louisiana children and youth, especially at-risk children and youth. Additionally, she has become an expert in truancy and death penalty mitigation and is court qualified in the areas of adult criminality, development of a criminal personality, juvenile delinquency social work and cultural poverty.

OSSRD also continues to engage in the acute post Katrina and Rita problems of those with behavioral health problems. Dr. Guin is the lead author for the recent publication: Health Care and Disaster Planning: Understanding the Impact of Disasters on the Medical Community.

Dr. Guin obtained an undergraduate degree in Sociology from LSU in 1974, a Masters of Social Work degree from LSU in 1978 and a Doctor of Philosophy in Social Work from the University of Texas in Arlington in 1991. Although her doctoral work focused on research, policy and administration, Dr. Guin’s doctoral dissertation, Juvenile to Adult Criminality in Louisiana, was prompted by her post Master's work in group homes and residential treatment facilities that provided court ordered treatment for troubled youth.
