The Indian Institute of Education, Pune was founded by J.P. Naik (1907-1981), humanist, freedom fighter, polymath, encyclopedic thinker and socialist educationist. Recognized by the UNESCO alongside Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi as three pioneering educationists, J.P. Naik is also known as an institution maker. After his death, the mission of the Indian Institute of Education was taken by his wife Chitra Naik (1918-2010) who continued his philosophy of decolonization of knowledge with her praxis of challenging educational orthodoxy. Presently the institution is working on interdisciplinary aspects of social sciences. Health studies, minority studies, tribal studies and studies in inclusive education are the leitmotivs of teaching, research and pedagogy at the Indian Institute of Education.
