University Impact Rankings 2019

New global ranking of university impact

Times Higher Education is developing a new rankings to capture universities’ impact on society, based on institutions’ success in delivering the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

A new set of performance metrics will be developed and published as a league table at the THE Innovation and Impact Summit, which will be held at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea in April 2019.

We are inviting all accredited universities that teach undergraduates to take part in this initiative.
