They attempt to document evidence of the impact that universities have upon the society, in addition to their research and teaching performance.

Notably, Amrita has been ranked No. 5 in the world for furthering SDG4 (Quality Education) and No. 8 for SDG5 (Gender Equality). The varsity was also ranked 37th for SDG3 (Good Health & Well-Being); 52nd for SD6 (Clean Water & Sanitation); and between 101-200 for SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure) as well as SDG17 (Partnership for The Goals).

“Times Higher Education are delighted by the performance of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in this year’s Impact Rankings,” said Duncan Ross, Chief Data Officer, Times Higher Education. “Their commitment to core humanity, that lies at the heart of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, shone through in their submission.
