Kyungpook National University ranked 13th in the world and 1st in Korea in the 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings, which were announced on April 27th by THE, a global university evaluation agency based in the UK. KNU ranked 13th in the world, up 41 spots this year, after being ranked 99th in the world in 2020 and 54th in 2021.

The ‘THE World University Impact Assessment’ considers not only a university’s research power (number of papers and citations, etc.), but also its social and global responsibilities as important evaluation factors. The THE World University Impact Assessment is the only assessment body that evaluates the public nature of universities with regard to solving global challenges. The evaluation criteria comprise the contributions toward the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. 1,406 universities from 106 countries participated in this year's evaluation. Among these 17 SDGs, KNU Ranked 6th in the world for Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11), 13th for Zero Hunger (SDG 2), 21st for Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (SDG 9), and 21st for Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8).

Kyungpook National University is contributing to job creation and providing innovative capabilities for corporate growth by promoting active industry-university-research cooperation and corporate competency strengthening
projects. In addition, KNU actively communicates with local residents by hosting various exhibitions, experiential opportunities, and educational events at its libraries, art galleries, and museums. Last year, it was the first university in the country to declare a ‘2040 Carbon-Neutral Campus,’ which was received positively in the environmental sector.

KNU President Hong Won-hwa noted, “The fact that KNU is the first domestic university to enter the top 20 in the world in the THE University Impact Rankings, which emphasize the social responsibilities of universities, shows that Kyungpook National University is ready to lead a new era. We will continue to do our best in education and research activities for the realization of a society that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim for.”
