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.

Current Topic


     02/18 - Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana

How widespread is the problem in our state? Take the survey!
Governor John Bel Edward’s deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned in November due to allegations of sexual harassment. A month earlier, celebrity chef John Besh stepped down from his restaurant management group after sexual harassment accusations. Charges of sexual misconduct in the workplace against celebrities and government officials made state and national headlines during the last several months of 2017.

How widespread is the problem in our state? Where is the distinction drawn between boorish acts and abusive behavior? Is every circumstance unique or should all offenders be dealt with in the same manner? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana” Wednesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, February 27)

Panelists:
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society for Human Resource Management
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell
- Allison A. Jones; Jones & Wilhite
- Janice Lansing, Governor Edwards’ Task Force on Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Policy

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and Southern University Vice President for External Affairs, Robyn Merrick, host the discussion.
