L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University is ranked 301+ in the overall 2019 THE University Impact Rankings. This result is based on the scaled and pre-rounded performance on Sustainable Development Goal 17 - Partnership for the Goals.
In the first edition of ENU participated in 5 SDGs. The highest contribution is made to such indicators as SDG 8 “Decent work and economic growth” and SDG 16 “Peace, justice and effective institutions”, where we are in the top 100-200.
L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University has been ranked in the following Sustainable Development Goal rankings:
According to the Vice-rector for International Cooperation and Innovations Baubek Somzhurek, “The UN Development Goals adopted in 2015 are called upon to play a huge role in solving global problems of humanity. This is a truly unique rating, which reflects the contribution of universities to the sustainable development of mankind. Central Asia was in this ranking. This has been proven to be the right path for the development of our university”.
The inclusion in these rankings is in itself a great achievement and it marks ENU out as a global pioneer – demonstrating commitment not just to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals through its teaching, research and knowledge transfer, but also to embodying the goals in the institution’s internal practices, policies and procedures and providing verifiable evidence of your activities.
This impact rating is the first to measure the success of global universities in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and more than 500 institutions from 75 countries across six continents have taken part. The data collected from universities will be combined with data from Elsevier to produce the tables.
The first edition of the ranking includes indicators based on 11 of the 17 SDGs.
Excluding the revitalising global partnerships goal, which is the only mandatory goal for inclusion in the overall table, SDG 4 on quality education has received the most submissions. Over 400 universities have submitted data and information on their lifelong learning measures and their proportion of first generation students.
Phil Baty, chief knowledge officer at THE, said that universities’ reaction to the THE University Impact Rankings has been “amazing”. “What’s really exciting is that we’ve seen prestigious research universities that perform well in the world rankings take part and we’ve seen institutions that have never before engaged in global rankings – particularly universities from developing countries that are not research-intensive – participate as well to demonstrate that they have an impact.”
