The CES University of Medellín, a re-accredited institution in high quality of higher education and with 42 years of foundation, was recognized as one of the best performing institutions in the world and the first in Colombia in the Sustainable Development Goals (ODS ) of the Impact Rankings prepared by The Times Higher Education firm.
The first place at the national level is shared by the CES University and Eafit who were located in the 2020 edition in the 101-200 group in the ranking, which measures the performance of the world's universities against the United Nations SDGs.
Additionally, as part of the balance, the CES University worldwide ranked 68th in SDG 1 End of poverty, 31st in SDG 3 Health and well-being, 21st in SDG 13 Climate action.
“At this time it is even more important to be aligned with that 2030 agenda and to show, beyond words, the commitment to building a more sustainable society. This is our commitment and it is increasingly evident in the integration of this common agenda into our development plan and in the advances that we can see in recent years and that are recognized, as on this occasion, by The Times Higher Education in its world ranking of impact and performance against the SDGs ”, expressed Dr. Jorge Julián Osorio Gómez, rector of the CES University.
The survey measures the global performance of universities with respect to the SDGs under three indicators: research, dissemination and administration. For this second edition, in 2020, the institutions were able to present documentation to be evaluated in the 17 SDGs and not in the 11 as was done in the 2019 version.
This second edition includes 766 universities from 85 countries.
