Impact Rankings 2021: gender equality

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 5 – gender equality measures universities’ research on the study of gender equality, their policies on gender equality, and their commitment to recruiting and promoting women.

The list includes 776 institutions from 87 countries/regions.
