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.
