The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

“We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach, and stewardship,” states the ranking website.

McMaster leads the way in global ranking, with a student body and faculty from well over 90 countries worldwide and 70 international exchange agreements in place.
