This is the third year for the impact rankings, which recognize the contributions of universities to make the world a safer, more sustainable place. These rankings are based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The goals are a call to action to end poverty and hunger, protect the planet, and enable everyone to live in peace and prosperity by 2030.
