Welcome to SDGs at IUPUI!
The United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to achieve a sustainable future and promote equality, human rights, and justice for all by 2030. In 2021, IUPUI was ranked #2 in the United States and #28 in the world in the TIMES Higher Education Impact Rankings for our engagement with SDGs. IUPUI is proud to be ranked #1 in the United States for SDG Goal 10 on reducing inequalities within and between nations.
IUPUI is fulfilling its responsibility to advancing sustainable development by supporting research, teaching, and engagement on various complex issues that play out across societal, environmental, and economic contexts. The SDGs contribute to our three urgent priorities: the success of our students, advancements in health and life sciences, and contributing to the well-being of the citizens of Indianapolis, Indiana, and beyond. Even more so, undertaking the SDGs allows IUPUI to embody our duty to diversity, equity, and inclusion across communities locally and globally. IUPUI sincerely values its global engagement and its unapologetic commitment to an equitable, inclusive and anti-racist campus culture. The SDGs provide a foundation for IUPUI to align our local and global senses of responsibility so that we are positioned to take a stand, make a difference, and fully commit to building a sustainable and prosperous future for all people and our planet.
