Madras School of Social Work - MSSW

A woman with an inborn instinct and insatiable thirst for service to humanity Mrs. Mary Clubwala Jadhav, founded the Madras of School of Social Work in 1952. Born in 1908 into a rich Parsi family, she was raised strictly in the traditional way by her mother who taught her the values of caring and sharing. She became totally involved in social work with sincerity and commitment. In 1937, Mrs. Mary Clubwala was made the honorary secretary of the Guild of Service. At that time there were only three schools of social work in India and all of them were located in the northern region. In order to facilitate easy access and appropriate practical learning for students interested in social work in the southern region she decided to start the Madras school of social work. She had to face many hurdles and there was delay, but the will to start the school was not lost. With no initiation of action from the government, Mrs. Mary Clubwala took it on herself the task of starting the School of social work. She visited various schools of social work in USA to know about their functioning and finally her dream came true in 1952. The vision of the institute is to emerge as the Centre for excellence in Education and Research in Social Work, Social Sciences and Management to meet the demands of the Global Society and build human resource for inclusive development. The mission of the institute is to will strive to provide high quality education based on a strong value foundation, promote research driven by global societal needs and implement unique interventions form inclusive development and in the process create professionals who make a difference in the society.
