Overview

 Invitation to Scholars with desire to contribute to an institution that strives for the creation of a Just and Equitable society through education, training, research, policy dialogue, advocacy, social mobilization and community work. This is an opportunity to build a new institution and grow along with it.

  • In 1986, as part of the Institute’s Golden Jubilee initiatives towards holistic and sustainable development, the idea of a rural campus was conceived. The Government of Maharashtra donated 100 acres of land in Sindphal village, Tuljapur Taluka, Osmanabad District for this purpose. Its location in a semi-arid region that is underdeveloped in ecological and socio- economic terms gives the rural campus and its programmes a distinctive character.
  • The vision of TISS Tuljapur is “to be a premier and a unique campus of TISS recognised locally and globally for development and application of knowledge in social sciences and social work to develop alternative and sustainable models for social transformation based on the principles of human dignity, equity and inclusion.” It aims at creating a cadre of competent and committed development professionals, practitioners, teachers, researchers and activists through teaching, research, training and field action and be a responsible knowledge partner with government, people’s organisations and academic institutions for building capacity, contributing to policy formulation and reaching out especially to marginalised sections of the society at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
  • The institute faculty makes notable contributions to academic research and policy making.
