Our future

Our promise: We’re committed to advancing outreach, research, teaching, and stewardship activities that align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and tackle some of the world’s most urgent challenges – from climate change to hunger and poverty.

To track our continued progress, we’ll continue to participate in the annual Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, a global ranking that captures the role of universities in delivering on social impact and sustainability.

We encourage you to visit and explore some of the resources showcasing Queen’s actions and initiatives advancing these global goals:
