University Impact Rankings 2019

The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach, and stewardship.

This first edition includes more than 450 universities from 76 countries.

The metrics were developed in partnership with Vertigo Ventures.
