The Office of Students' Affairs (OSA) was established in 2006, as an administrative unit of TISS to liaise between students, faculty and the administration.
Headed by the Dean (Students’ Affairs), the mission of the Office is to create a climate which encourages personal and academic development of students through their tenure in TISS. In order achieve this, the OSA commits to augment diverse support mechanisms to enhance quality of life of the TISS student community. The OSA is always accessible to every student of TISS, and the students always approach the team with ease.
The student support services include overseeing the infrastructure and facilities of stay on campus for students, health and mental health support, health insurance, anchoring student union and other student groups like Bridge, I-labs and TISS Life.
The OSA coordinates with other offices like OPEM (OBC, PWD, EWS and Minority) Cell, WGDC (Women and Gender Development Cell) that ensures affirmative practices on campus promoting equity and justice.
The OSA also plays a key role in several student union related activities including the organising of the ‘Institute Day’
Considering that students come from marginalised social locations, the OSA offers student aid to students who have an annual income of less than 4.5 lakhs per annum. In addition, the OSA networks with external stakeholders and alumni to offer need cum meritorious scholarships for students.
In order to maintain parity, the OSA liaisons with the Chairpersons of Student Affairs from Tuljapur, Hyderabad and Guwahati.
Over the years, we are able to increase the financial support offered to students
Financial Support in the last the years: (Including School level aid and meritorious scholarships)
In addition to financial aid for the year 2020-21, and to support online learning process amidst the ongoing pandemic, we could support 122 students with laptops and 136 students for data pack costs.
