Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Social Work is the only social work college in Dhule District, initiated in 1994 by dynamic and socially committed members of Samata Shikshan Sanstha, Pune. College has completed 25 years of existence
College has an inherent bond with the students from the SC, ST and OBC communities, 95 percent of students come from these communities. We also promote girl students, who on an average form 48 percent of our student population. We are proud of our students who perform excellently in academics as well as in co – curricular and extra – curricular activities. Our result at the University level is 100 percent.
We follow a pedagogy which is holistic and comprehensive, it has been our constant endeavor not only to impart quality education to the students, but equip them with soft skills and groom their personalities. We try to inculcate basic human values so that our students are responsible citizens of the country. We nurture our students’; provide roots to grow and wings to fly. It is a constant endeavor to provide maximum opportunities and prepare the students for professional social work.
The thrust of the College is to reach out to the most deprived and marginalized sections of society and in keeping with this we put in special efforts to educate the Scheduled caste and Schedule Tribe youth and equip them with the requisite knowledge and skills to accept professional social work challenges in society. We also strive to fulfill our social responsibility of extending a helping hand to the deprived communities through our field action project and extension activities.
