The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) strives to support its member universities to deliver quality education through cutting edge research, innovation and academic mobility to enable them rank higher globally. With the controversies surrounding University rankings, they have remained relevant in demonstrating the value of institutions of Higher Learning.
In the recently released Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings 2022, Times Higher Education assessed universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching. The 2022 Impact ranking includes 1,406 universities from 106 countries/regions.
A total of 81 universities in Africa featured among the top 1,406 universities from 106 countries/regions across the globe. Below is a table highlighting RUFORUM member Universities (highlighted in yellow) among the top 81 universities in Africa according to Times Higher Education (THE) 2022 Impact Rankings.
