The results revealed USP’s overall score of 70 out of 100 and an Overall Rank of 401-600 out of 1406 institutions.
Participation in the overall ranking requires universities to submit data for at least four SDGs, one of which must be SDG 17 – Partnerships for Goals.
The overall score is generated from the score for SDG 17, plus the three strongest of the other SDGs for which data is provided.
USP submitted data for the following SDGs in November 2021 for the 2022 rankings: SDG17: Partnership for the Goals; SDG 4: Quality Education; SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy; SDG 13: Climate Action; SDG 14: Life Below Water and SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
USP Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Pal Ahluwalia says these rankings validate the excellence of their institution and the resilience of our people.
He says this is all the more remarkable given that the Times Higher Education is an independent body that judges and benchmarks us against global universities.
