National Institute of Social Work and Social Sciences [NISWASS] was founded in 1971 by Dr. Radhakant Nayak, Former Secretary to Government of India. The Institute was set up with the objective of supplementing the efforts of Governments in helping communities that are struggling to come up on their own. It sought to realise the vision of an Institute engaging itself in research, consultancy, training and action programmes in social, economic, educational, and cultural spheres. NISWASS has decided to empower the Scheduled Caste and the Tribes and the other deprived sections, including the Other Backward Classes. It is wholly dedicated to create complete professionals who tangibly help the deprived and downtrodden developing both intellectually and economically. The institute had the vision of establishment of a humane, inclusive and ideal social order. The mission of the institute is to focus on the liberation of the oppressed and transformation of the society guided by humanism and compassion through pragmatic voluntarism.
