June 1, 2023 - Central Philippines State University (CPSU) joins the list of the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Ranking fifth edition which is participated by 1,591 universities from 112 countries.
As a first-time participating university, CPSU submitted entries in SDGs 1 - No Poverty, 5 - Gender Equality, 15 - Life on Land, and the mandatory SDG 17 – Partnership for the Goals, which evaluates how the University initiated and strengthened collaboration in a global perspective to promote its best practices.
Specifically in the Philippines, CPSU takes pride in being among the 29 universities that underwent the scrutiny of the said competitive evaluation with Ateneo de Manila University topping the list.
The Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Ranking is the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across four (4) broad areas in research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.
Dr. Aladino Moraca, CPSU president, stated how these results (including the WURI ranking) affirm the University’s serious commitment to sustainability as it gains this international acclaim.
“These recognitions reflect our legacy and serious efforts to address both local and global challenges in terms of food security, environment protection, agri-innovation, and gender equality as evidenced by the impact that our programs create to the community,” Dr. Moraca said.
