Department of Social Work (Delhi School of Social Work) University of Delhi, celebrates 75 years of committed academic engagement (1946–2021). The Department was founded in 1946 as the National YWCA School of Social Work at Isabella Thouborn College, a reputed Women’s College in Lucknow.

It was taken over by the University of Delhi in 1979 and became its Department of Social Work.
The first batch of students from the Department had met Mahatma Gandhi and the best written resolutions of the social work students were put together and gifted as the first copy of the accepted oath to the Mahatma and which became our first oath as social work professionals. The Platinum Jubilee celebrations of the Department coincide with the 75 years of India’s independence and 100 years of foundation of the University of Delhi.
