Chitkara University has been ranked 4th in India in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings-2022 and is among the top 5 in almost every individual SDG. The varsity has taken a quantum leap in Global rankings also and are now ranked between 201 to 300 among 1400+ universities from over 100 countries across the world which speaks volumes about the far reaching impact of our research, outreach and teaching.
Times Higher Education (THE) Rankings assess the impact of a university on the society through its contributions toward the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the UN in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and to ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The rankings provide the definitive list of the world’s best universities, with an emphasis on the research mission.
It is the only global university league table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); industry income (knowledge transfer) and international outlook (staff, students and research). Trusted worldwide by students, teachers, governments and industry experts, this year’s ranking revealed how the COVID-19 pandemic has started to shift global higher education performance.
On the occasion, Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Pro-Chancellor, Chitkara University, said, “Chitkara University has always strived towards excellence and provides its students and staff ample opportunities and a progressive environment to make them competent to take on every challenge. We work with the intent to nurture the future and make this nation proud.”
