Taiwan NCKU Top 2 university in Asia in THE University Impact Ranking
The Times Higher Education (THE) magazine on Thursday (April 22) released the Impact Rankings 2020, and two Taiwanese universities were on the list, with National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) at 38th in the world and 2nd in Asia, a new record high for Taiwanese schools in the world's four major ranking agencies.
NCKU President Dr. Huey-Jen Su (蘇慧貞) mentioned that the school was one of the first universities in the country to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Su linked the extraordinary achievement to the school's wide range of applications, from internal affairs in campus, to participating in international medical and humanity rescue services.
The Impact Rankings were evaluated based on each university’s ability to support and deliver on the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. NCKU stood out in the categories of SDG7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), SDG9 (Industry Innovations and Infrastructure), and SDG14 (Life Below Water) across the higher education sector — of which it ranked among the top 20 in the world.
