About TISS:

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) was established in 1936, as the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work. At the height of economic depression in the 1930s, the trustees of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust willed to create an institution to train human service professionals to address acute poverty, destitution, unemployment, and other social and economic problems. The Trust invited Prof. Clifford Manshardt of Chicago University to establish the School of Social Work. In the subsequent decades, TISS influenced the direction of social work education and social research in India and Asia. In 1944, the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work was renamed as the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. In 1964, University Grants Commission (UGC), Government of India (GoI) recognised the Institute as a Deemed University under section 3 of the UGC Act 1956 , and fully funds its maintenance. TISS had celebrated it Platinum Jubilee in the year 2012.

TISS believes in the principle of learning by doing as a crucial part of the teaching–learning praxis across all programmes. Our teaching  methods involve classroom teaching, lectures, seminars, workshops, group discussions, social work laboratory sessions, role-plays, field practicum, and fieldwork exposure.

a. Focus on the Individual: Studying at the TISS Tuljapur Campus is learning as much about the social work profession as getting to know oneself. As a growing Campus with a focus on Rural Development, we aspire to create an environment of team spirit and professional integrity. Our efforts are on to develop leadership in this field. Hence, throughout the programme, we provide opportunities that will help the students to expand their understanding of self and society.

b. Learning by Doing: Field practicum constitutes an integral part of social work education and training at TISS Tuljapur Campus. It is designed to provide opportunities for developing confidence building and team spirit while working with people at various levels.
