Established in 1992, Hamdard Institute of Education and Social Sciences (HIESS) has the privilege to be the first constituent Institute of the University. The priority given to this Institute was a clear manifestation of both Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said`s realization of the importance of teacher education in the development of future generations and his disappointment and discontentment with the traditional methodologies of the then existing teacher training institutions. The basic statement, which later became the motto of the Institute, was “the production of the unconventional, capable, dynamic, creative, democratic and innovative teacher”. With this principle being the guiding force of operation, the Institute, with a small team of academicians, embarked upon its long and ambitious journey from a rather modest beginning. Now, HIESS has gained an enviable reputation of an exceptional teacher training institute in Pakistan, and has established itself as an esteemed organization, producing research scholars in the various fields of social sciences and education. Students from all over the country get enrolled in the various programs of studies, which have all the characteristics to be called “unique” due to their extraordinary emphasis on character building, original reflection and creativity. The novelty of the Institute also lies in its egalitarian and humanistic orientations. Knowledge being upheld as the highest value, the Institute has made a conscious effort to break, the distracting social prejudices, by setting on a lasting foundation of wealth, gender, language, age, religion, nation and ethnicity. The classes at HIESS present a colorful tapestry of students, differing widely in age group, social class, linguistic affiliation, religious background etc., but getting the same opportunities and rights. HIESS is an emblem of hope for many as it has opened for them new avenues to a successful, dignified and better life through its liberal structure. For instance its weekend program is the first to provide in-service teachers a vital opportunity to develop their potential, personality and to ensure a bright future.

If regarded closely, it would become manifest that, despite its miniature status in the grand picture that all the Institutions of Hamdard University combine to form, HIESS is most powerful with the biggest radius of influence as it is producing worthy teachers who will monitor the young mind to shape the history of our nation. HIESS is categorically producing a group of professionals whose effect on the society will start becoming visible in due course of time.
