The Department of Studies and Research in Social Work, Tumkur University has been doing an excellent work in teaching, research and extension activities. The present book titled Social Work Education in India: Issues and Concerns illustrates the academic commitment of the Department.
The achievements of Social Work profession in India are highly praiseworthy.

Much progress has been achieved in the recent past in terms of raising the standards of Social Work education, practice and research. The profession has been an active agent in bringing about qualitative changes in society. It is my firm conviction that social work education has the potential for achieving the desired results. I believe the present book is an exercise in that direction. I am quite impressed by the in-depth analysis of various facets of Social Work Education here. The book, in my opinion, definitely serves as a ready reference for teachers and researchers in the field of Social Work.
