Historical Note

The Inter-University Consortium for International Social Development (IUCISD) was founded in the 1970s by a group of social educators. IUCISD seeks to develop conceptual frameworks and effective intervention strategies geared to influencing local, national, and international systems. It is committed to creating peaceful solutions to the problems of survival at the local, national and global levels. IUCISD members, made up of international scholars and practitioners in human service professions, use a social development approach to: promote world peace and social justice, fight economic and political oppression, improve access to adequate health care and education, overcome discrimination against women and minorities and create sustainable income and economic structures.
