Orissa Academy of Social Science & Integrated Studies (OASIS) is a college has been set up by REEDS since 2007-08; Approved by Govt. of Orissa and Affiliated to Utkal University of Culture, Bhubaneswar.In its long span of development projects, REEDS found serious crisis in technically sound development experts to manage the projects at different level. Though there are few institutions providing Master of Social Work (MSW), the standard of knowledge is being undermined and become certificate oriented which has been a serious threat for the development sector and the higher education. REEDS had shared this feeling with many development agencies of national and international repute and everybody suggested to start a new institution with different and qualitative flavor that gave birth to OASIS at last. Some eminent high level educationalist, development agencies and industrial & corporate houses joined their hands with us to produce quality students to solve the crisis in the sector.
