Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings is one of the world entities to assess and rank universities across the globe against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The universities, including Universiti Malaya (UM) were assessed through THE’s calibrated indicators in order to provide comprehensive and balanced comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.
UM is committed to address global issues as expressed in the United Nations’ SDGs by participating in this ranking’s fourth edition, together with the other 1,405 universities from 106 countries/regions in the 2022 edition.
The release of the THE Impact Rankings on 27th April 2022 places UM in the band 201-300 with the overall score in between 76.9 - 82.0. The top 3 SDGs contributed to the overall scores are SDG 5: Gender Equality, SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities and SDG 4: Quality Education, together with the mandatory SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
