National Institute of Psychology (NIP) is an autonomous organization under the Federal Government with a mandate to carry out research in the discipline of Psychology and teaching at higher levels of education. The organization has passed through three distinct phases.
The NIP was established in 1976 by the Ministry of Education under a resolution with main objectives to undertake social psychological research and to look into the factors which impede national integration, and thus also to discover new ways of installing a sense of nation-hood among the people of the country. In 1983, the Federal Ministry of Education decided to give NIP the status of a Centre of Excellence in Psychology and to locate it in Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
