Integrating these ideas in the motto as —Revolution in the life of learner and a revolution in education has always to go together.  To achieve this, education has to be totally socialized and humanized.

Keeping this constructive ideas at the back of mind —The INDIAN INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION, (IIE), Pune, was founded by the legendary educationist and lover of humanity, Padma Bhushan J.P. Naik in 1948. Later on, the mission of the I.I.E. was taken ahead by his life-partner Dr. Chitra Naik with the same set of humanist principles i.e. “Education for all” and “Health for all”.

Presently the Indian Institute of Education is working on interdisciplinary aspects of Social Sciences with main focus on generation of knowledge in Studies in Need-based Education, Decolonization of Education, Early Childhood Care, Critical Pedagogy, and Studies in Education of Marginalized Communities and Health Studies.
