(RANKED) These Southeast Asian Universities Are Making The Most Impact on Society
The Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
They use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach, and stewardship.
The metrics were developed in partnership with Vertigo Ventures.
This first edition includes more than 450 universities from 76 countries.
There are 17 UN SDGs and we are evaluating university performance on 11 of them in our first edition of the ranking (click on a category below to view its specific methodology):
- SDG 3 – Good health and well-being
- SDG 4 – Quality education
- SDG 5 – Gender equality
- SDG 8 – Decent work and economic growth
- SDG 9 – Industry, innovation, and infrastructure
- SDG 10 – Reduced inequalities
- SDG 11 – Sustainable cities and communities
- SDG 12 – Responsible consumption and production
- SDG 13 – Climate action
- SDG 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions
- SDG 17 – Partnerships for the goals
Universities can submit data on as many of these SDGs as they are able. Each SDG has a series of metrics that are used to evaluate the performance of the university in that SDG.
Any university that provides data on SDG 17 and at least three other SDGs is included in the overall ranking.
