On April 22, 2020, Times Higher Education published the first THE University Impact Rankings 2020. It assesses universities across the world against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for their social and economic impact. The second edition includes 766 universities from 85 countries.
The ranking is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Khazar University is the only University in Azerbaijan highly assessed in almost all categories. It ranked 101-200 in SDG 1; 201+ in SDGs 14 and 15; 201-300 in SDGs 7, 10 and 13; 301+ in SDGs 6 and 12; 301-400 in SDGs 4, 8, 11 and 16; 401+ in SDGs 5 and 9; 401-600 in SDG 3 and 601+ in SDG 17.
Inclusion of Khazar University in this ranking is in itself a great achievement for both University and Azerbaijani higher education system, demonstrating University’s commitment not just to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals through teaching, research and knowledge transfer, but also to incorporating the goals in Khazar University’s internal practices, policies, and procedures.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of goals that aim to support all countries in achieving economic, social, and environmentally sustainable development. They were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, declaring a global recognition of the need for partnership in creating a better world.
