Indore School of Social Work - ISSW

The Indore School of Social Work was founded in 1951 by the Indore Christian College at the instance of the Madhya Bharat State Branch of the Indian Conference of Social Work. The School was granted recognition by the Department of Education of the erstwhile government of Madhya Bharat for short-term certificate course in Social Work.In 1955, the Board of Governors of the Indore Christian College invited Dr. (Mrs.) Winifred Bryce, a well-known sociologist, educationist and social worker, and a former Principal of Indore Christian College, to head the School. With vast experience of education and social welfare work in India, mainly in the Malwa region, for over forty years, Dr.Bryce gave able and inspiring leadership to the school. Under her leadership the school was raised to the graduate diploma standard offering a one-year course in Social Work.The next important milestone in the development of the School was the a raising of it as a postgraduate department of the Indore Christian College with affiliation to the Vikram University for the Degree of Master of Arts in Social Work, in 1961.Much of the credit for raising the School to this standard goes to Dr. Bryce and to Dr. CW David, the then Principal of the Indore Christian College.From 1961 to 1966, the School continued as Department of Indore Christian College. In 1964, when the University of Indore was established at Indore, the Indore Christian College, and through it the School of Social Work, was disaffiliated from the Vikram University and affiliated to the University of Indore.It had been felt for some time that as a professional training institution, the School of Social Work should be established as a separate and independent college with an identity of its own. In 1966 the school was established as an independent body under a separate Governing Board. In July 1966, the University of Indore, now called Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya.
