In 2020, RSUH took part in the global impact rating of the Times Higher Education agency for the first time. This method ranks universities in terms of 17 United Nations-defined sustainable development goals. The table consisted of 766 universities from 85 countries.
For goal 4 (“Ensuring an inclusive and fair quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all”), RSUH along with MSU, Gertsen Russian State Pedagogical University and Kazan Federal University, took positions 101-200 (57.7-68.5 out of 100 points) and 5th place among all Russian universities.
For goal 16 (“Promoting the building of peace-loving and open societies for sustainable development, ensuring access to justice for all and the creation of effective, accountable and participatory institutions at all levels”), RSUH took positions 201-300 (50.1- 63.1 out of 100 points) and 16th place among all Russian universities.
The inclusion of RSUH in the Times Higher Education ranking table was made possible due to the strategic partnership between RSUH and THE and the training seminar held at RSUH in November 2019 by the Brand Director of the Times Higher Education.
As of 2020, RSUH will be included in all THE rankings, as well as in the rankings of other world agencies, on a regular basis. This work is being carried out by the Research Center for Integrative and Digital Humanitarian Studies, created in January this year.
