Impact Rankings 2021: partnerships for the goals

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

This table on SDG 17 – partnerships for the goals looks at the broader ways in which universities support the SDGs through collaboration with other countries, promotion of best practices and publication of data.

The list includes 1,154 institutions from 96 countries/regions.
