Each invited professor spends approximately one month at OPU to conduct special lectures, seminars, and individual discussions with faculty and students. The Guest Professor Program aims to stimulate students’ intellectual growth, to provide firsthand access to the finest world-class research, and to build tighter relations between OPU and leading universities around the world.

Our tenth guest in 2014 is Dr. Lorraine C. Marais from Hawaii Pacific University, U.S.A. Dr. Marais works as director of School of Social Work of Hawaii Pacific University and one of the researchers with extensive experience and expertise in macro social work.
