The 2022 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings were the fourth to be carried out, covering a total of 1,406 higher education institutions from 106 countries.
For each sustainable development goal, a number of criteria have been defined. Higher education institutions are awarded points based on documentation they submit, showing the extent to which they have fulfilled the criteria.
SLU is taking part for the first time and had chosen four of the goals for assessment. All participating higher education institutions had to submit a report for goal 17, Partnerships for the Goals, and an additional three goals.
SLU’s results for the individual goals for 2022:
- Zero Hunger (goal 2), ranked 74.
- Climate Action (goal 13), ranked 57.
- Life on Land (goal 15), ranked 101–200.
- Partnerships for the Goals (goal 17), ranked 301–400.
Of the Swedish higher education institutions included in this year’s ranking, SLU ranks as third, after the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.
