The THE Impact Rankings have been annually published since 2019 with the aim of visualizing each university's performance with regards to social contribution against the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) advocated by the United Nations. Each university submits data pertaining to SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) and at least three additional SDGs. The evaluations for SDG 17 and the three most highly evaluated SDGs are then combined to determine the university's overall ranking.
