For the fourth straight year, Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) led the Philippines' list of schools included in this year's Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings.

ADMU was included in the 201 to 300 bracket, making it the country's top ranking university in the 2024 list that included 56 Philippine institutions.

It's also the Katipunan-based university's second consecutive year in the bracket. Its best performance to date was in 2022 when it was part of the 101 to 200 bracket.

In its methodology, THE said it based its rankings on the institutions' observance of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to tackle climate change and work to preserve oceans and forests, giving "peace and prosperity for people and the planet."

ADMU's best scores included SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 16 (peace, justice, and strong institutions), and 17 (partnerships for the goals).

Three Philippine universities, meanwhile, were in the 401 to 600 bracket: De La Salle University, Ifugao State University, and the University of the Philippines.

Four local institutions were part of the 601 to 800 bracket: Batangas State University, Mariano Marcos State University, Saint Louis University, and University of Santo Tomas.

Australia's Western Sydney University topped the list.

"By excelling in a variety of SDGs, these universities showcase their commitment to addressing the world's most pressing challenges, including environmental sustainability, social inclusion, economic growth and partnerships," THE said.
