Rethinking TISS: Restructuring for Relevance

In 2006 TISS underwent an academic restructuring. Departments & units orgainized into schools & centres.

Prof. Parasuraman
Prof. Parasuraman (Current Director) On How Restructuring Came About
"As a faculty team all of us got together to internally analyse how are we organised, how are we supported, how are we facilitated in our teaching and research work and how that has resulted in productivity in terms of research output, production and our teaching actually. I think that was far more an internally driven, soul-searching process which the faculty went through... 

It's very interesting that an institution can go through restructuring and repositioning without outside help. So once we understood what were our constraints, and once we understood that how else we can locate ourselves in order to be able to be relevant in the social and economic and political context, I think then it became easier for us to revise and reposition ourselves"
