Though, chronologically it was the third institution imparting social work education in India, it happens to be the very first institute to have gained a faculty status. Established in 1950, the Faculty made a modest beginning as the Baroda School of Social Work ( in 1951, elevated to the faculty status ) in the White Pavilion building in Sayajibaug.

Following which, it was moved to the seminar building of the Baroda College to occupy its present premises in 1960. The faculty was privileged to have Dr. Perin Vakharia as the founder Dean and faculty members of national and international repute who joined together to build a strong foundation.
