Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and University of Sto. Tomas were among the five Philippine universities included in this year’s Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings.
Ateneo was the highest-ranked Philippine institution in the list, placing overall at the 201-300 bracket among the 1,115 universities from 94 countries and regions.
Other local universities included in the THE Impact Rankings were Tarlac Agricultural University and Mapua University.
“Ateneo de Manila’s noteworthy performance in the 2021 THE Impact Rankings – its initial outing, to be precise – shows that our University can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the world’s top institutions when it comes to actual, real-world impact,” said Fr. Roberto Yap SJ, ADMU University President. “THE Impact Rankings are really consistent with our identity and mission. The SDGs on Health, Sustainability, Peace and Justice, and Partnerships really resonate with who we are and what we do.”
“It is proof that our community is able to affect change in our society, in our classrooms, to our research and creative work, and our social development programs. Ateneo de Manila vows to continue and expand its work in helping create a more sustainable and equitable world for everyone,” he added.
The THE Impact Rankings is a global performance table that “assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
It draws its ratings from the institution’s research, outreach and stewardship programs.
