Now in its third year, the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings were designed to showcase progress against the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by measuring a university’s environmental, social and economic impact.
Standout results across the SDGs included the University being placed 2nd in the world for its efforts to reduce inequality within and among countries (SDG 10) and 3rd for strengthening partnerships for the goals (SDG 17).
Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Martin Bean CBE said he was proud of the outstanding results.
“It’s wonderful to have moments like these when the efforts of our extraordinary community are recognised far and wide,” he said.
“This is an outstanding achievement and a remarkable improvement from ranking 10th last year, reflecting our collective determination to shape the world and contribute in meaningful ways to the communities we’re so passionate about.
“We’re living our purpose as a university focused on practical impact and I’m so proud of the many thousands of people, staff and students, who earned this recognition.”
