Our uni receives a ‘gold star’ in sustainability measures

The University of the Sunshine Coast’s focus on sustainability has been recognised with a lofty position in a major global ranking.

UniSC topped Queensland and was named among the world’s top two per cent of universities in the 2023 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings.

These rankings assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The rankings compare research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.

UniSC placed 29 overall out of 1591 institutions worldwide and was third for clean water and sanitation.

UniSC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett says it is a phenomenal outcome, as UniSC improved its position across categories.

“We are going from strength to strength, and to be named among the world’s top three universities for clean water and sanitation is a wonderful recognition,” she says.

“We can be proud to see that we are practising our sustainability values every day and ensuring that our campus operations are in alignment with these global sustainability goals.”
