The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) is a centrally funded Deemed University that works towards creating a people-centred, ecologically sustainable and just society. The TISS hosts 6 Schools and 4 independent Centres offering 14 highly competitive, socially relevant professional postgraduate courses and vibrant M.Phil and Ph.D. programmes. The Institute has over 130 full-time faculty members involved in teaching, research, policy influencing and institution building activities and over 1000 students. It was accorded a 5-star rating by NAAC.

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) was established in 1936, as the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work. The first school of social work in India, the TISS was a pioneering effort, characteristic of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT). Its establishment was the result of the decision of the Trustees of the SDTT to accept Dr. Clifford Manshardt’s vision of a post-graduate school of social work of national stature that would engage in a continuous study of Indian social issues and problems and impart education in social work to meet the emerging need for trained human power. This subsequently influenced the direction of social work education and social research in India.
