York University is strengthening its position as a leader in creating a sustainable and inclusive world, ranking in the world’s top 35 in the respected Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022 for meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The University ranked 33 out of 1,406 post-secondary institutions, moving up an impressive 34 spots from its position at 67 out of 1,117 post-secondary institutions involved in last year’s Times Higher Education Impact Rankings.

“Our continued recognition as a world leader in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings is a testament to York’s steadfast commitment to build a more just and sustainable future,” said York University President and Vice-Chancellor Rhonda Lenton.

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings considers factors such as research, stewardship, outreach and teaching to determine the rank for each institution. The United Nations has 17 global sustainable development goals for 2030, and York is well ranked among the top 100 universities across them.
