Message from the Principal

Together we can make a difference in our society

The College of Social Work, Nirmala Niketan has shaped its vision in tune with the spirit of its founders to contribute to the building up of a new social order in India based on human dignity and social justice. The College is committed to work with a preferential option for the vulnerable and marginalised groups in society to ensure their development and empowerment.

The College offers a range of courses relevant to the field of social work education and practice such as Bachelor’s and Master’s, a Ph.D. programme in social work. Additionally there are a number of short term courses which helps students to be better equipped with theory, practice and develop skills in utilising social work intervention and adopt ethical practices and the principles of Professional Social Work in working with individuals, families, groups, communities.

The College has initiated several field action projects in the areas of children, women, rural, communal harmony, disability, disaster management, dowry, housing, domestic work and other social.

We are happy to announce that the College of Social Work, Nirmala Niketan has been awarded with academic excellence by the National Accreditation and Assessment Cell (NAAC) the highest score in all the three cycles. In 2001 the College was awarded with five start status, In 2007 the College was awarded with A+ with an Institutional Score of 93 percent and In 2015 it was reaccredited (Third Cycle) with A Grade (3.53 CGPA out of 4). This would not have been possible without the commitment and sincere efforts of each and every member of the Management, students, alumni, NGO partners, field work organisation, Teaching, Administrative and Support staff.

We are confident that we will continue to forge ahead and address the various concerns of the Society.
