The University has ranked second in the U.S. in the 2020 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, which measure sustainability among institutions of higher education.
The 2020 rankings, released this month by Times Higher Education magazine, placed Carolina 22nd in the world out of 766 institutions from 85 countries. The rankings are based on the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, aimed at creating a sustainable world by 2030. The rankings use evidence provided by universities on their adherence to each of the goals. The overall ranking combines a university’s three highest-scaled Sustainable Development Goal scores.
UNC ranked first in the world in clean water and sanitation, fourth in sustainable cities and communities and 10th in industry, innovation and infrastructure.
The list was led by New Zealand’s University of Auckland and the University of Sydney and Western Sydney University in Australia.
In the U.S., only Arizona State University ranked higher than UNC.
