THE World University Rankings
Kyungpook National University ranked No. 54 in the world, No. 2 in Korea and No. 1 national university in the World University Impact Rankings 2021 announced by Times Higher Education (THE), a British global university evaluation agency.
In response to the urgent call for action by The United Nation (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, all developed and developing countries have undertaken efforts to reach 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of improving health and education, reducing inequality, spurring economic growth, tackling climate change, and preserving oceans and forests. The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings has since assessed universities against SDGs and provided a comprehensive comparison across four areas: research, stewardship, outreach, and teaching. Following last year’s achievement in entering the world’s top 100 list for the first time, Kyungpook National University (KNU) has elevated this year in rank to 54th worldwide, 11th in Zero Hunger (SDG2) and Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG11), 23rd in Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG9), 55th in Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG8), 61st in Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG6), and 76th in Quality Education (SDG4) among 1,115 universities from 94 countries/regions.
