North East Institute of Social Sciences and Research
(NEISSR) is the first and only Master of Social Work (MSW) College under
Nagaland University. At present, NEISSR offers specializations in Peace and
Conflict Transformation Studies, Youth Development and Community Development.
The courses of MW have been contextualized to prepare the students with the
theoretical know-how and expertise of peace building. We are also happy to
inform you that from academic session 2022, the University has permitted us to
run BSW courses too.
NEISSR aims at making a premier and unique professional
institute in the country and especially for the region.
It envisages bringing affordable professional courses to the
poor and deserving sections of society. Vocational Training Centres along with skill-building and
entrepreneurship development programs are taken up to address the need of the
dropout and unemployed youth. Nagaland, with the combined efforts of the
various stakeholders, now can boast of a formidable primary and secondary
education delivery system with the coverage of around 85% of youth.
It is in this background that the Diocese of Kohima started
a Master of Social Work (MSW) Institute in the heart of the commercial capital
of the state- Dimapur, in the year 2014 and Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) in
the year 2022. The Institute is affiliated with Nagaland University, Red. No.
HOME/SRC-6723, Dt. 22-05-2014 registered under the registration of Societies
Act 1860 as amended vide Societies Registered (Nagaland First Amendment) Act,
Social Work as a profession has been attracting a lot of
young people while making their career choices. The profession became an
academic subject in the early part of the last century, and the subject has
been limited to comparatively few universities and Institutes. The sudden spurt
in the professional education scenario in India in the latter part of the
century gave a boost to social work education. In northeast India, like the
other professional courses, Social Work was introduced rather recently.
However, there are hundreds of youth opting for the course but with the limited
number of Institutes and seats, a formidable number of them go to mainland India
for pursuing their course. In this regard, it should also be noted that while
the courses offered by the Institutes outside the northeast are at par with
national and international standards, the approaches are often based on the
social situations in the particular states or region. This, more often, is not
replicable in the scenario of the North-Eastern states which have a distinct
identity and culture than that of the rest of India.
My heart is filled with great joy and pleasure as I address these lines to our well wishers and friends. I m very happy that the Diocese of Kohima is starting North East Institute for Social Sciences and Research (NEISSR), the first Master of Social Work College in Nagaland.
Welcome to the North East Institute of Social Sciences and Research (NEISSR) based in Dimapur / Chümoukedima, Nagaland, is the first Master of Social Work institute, affiliated under Nagaland University.
