The International University of Sarajevo (IUS) is again on the prestigious world ranking list, Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Ranking, which annually selects and ranks the world's best universities in line with their contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
IUS has thus once again shown that the quality and hard work in the field of higher education can achieve global results. At the same time, this success is a great recognition and reward to the IUS staff for all the efforts they have invested in recent years in carrying out numerous activities, as well as in raising awareness of the importance of the UN goals. Also, IUS confirmed by its example that it is the leading University in BiH in the SDG delivery, because it is the only university from BiH which is ranked on the THE ranking list.
Over the past four years, SDG has been gradually integrated into various segments of university activities, such as: the promotion of SDG on social networks and the IUS website; designing teaching courses that connect basic knowledge with practice; incorporation of the SDG into the curriculum; networking with local and international partners; participation in projects, research and various types of socially contributing actions, involving the local and wider community, and regular reporting and documentation on SDG activities, both internally and externally - connecting with global reporting networks in the field of SDG.
It is important to emphasise that IUS has raised the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to an even higher level, by including the UN SDG goals in the IUS Development Strategy 2022-2026, and in its operational plans.
More information on IUS activities in the field of SDG can be found on a specially created page of the IUS website.
