Based on the forgoing an idea to start a formal training programme for the potential social workers in Punjab was initiated in 1987, when the department of Social Work was established as one of the five departments at that time to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the Punjabi University. The thrust of the department is to promote professional education of Social Work with a view to equip students with the knowledge base, methods and techniques of doing social work in a professional manner. Being the only department of its type in the entire state of Punjab, it is particularly proud of its role in rebuilding the notion of social work from an unremunerated altruistic work to an exclusively scientific and educationally planned professional work.
