Times Higher Education has started collecting data for a new ranking that will be the first to measure global universities’ success in delivering the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Universities around the world will have until 11 January 2019 to submit data for the new THE University Impact Rankings, which is open to all accredited universities that teach undergraduates.

The first edition of the ranking will include metrics based on 11 SDGs, but the long-term goal is to measure performance against all 17 goals. The data collected from universities will be combined with data from Elsevier to produce an overall ranking of universities as well as separate rankings of institutions that are best achieving the individual SDGs. 

The tables will be launched at the THE Innovation and Impact Summit in South Korea in April 2019.

Existing data partners should look out for an email from Times Higher Education with the subject line: “Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings – Data Collection Portal Now Open”.

If you are expecting the email but do not receive it, or if you want to join the global project, please email
