  4. 4. ABOUT TISS Sir Dorabji Tata was passionate about social upliftment, education and its reach across the country “without any distinction of place, nationality or creed”. Therefore he put his heart and his wealth into the creation of premier institutes of learning, research and social advancement through a trust. One such institution was the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work, which had its humble beginning in 1936 with 20 students. The institute was a pioneering effort in the field of Social Science study, research and practice in India.
