Moving on Up

An intensified focus on sustainable development combined with ongoing high-quality, transformative research has pushed York up one spot to fourth position in Maclean’s annual university rankings report for the current academic year. York posted top-5 results in key areas of evaluation, including faculty awards, medical/science grants, and student scholarships and bursaries. 

The move forward builds on York’s advancement into the top 40 spot in the 2023 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, released this past summer. Competing against 1,500 post-secondary institutions from around the world, York attained a strong global standing for progressing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in the following categories:

• SDG 1 – No Poverty (21st in the world)

• SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities (25th in the world)

• SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities (12th in the world)

York also made a significant jump in the 2024 Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings, rising 103 spots to 353rd in the world – a 25-per-cent improvement in the University’s standing over the past eight years. York also scored high in the 2023 QS Subject Report Rankings released last March. 

The global survey evaluated more than 15,000 programs from 1,594 institutions; York placed high in three subject areas: English language and literature, philosophy and – for the first time – the performing arts. 

“These latest QS World University Rankings build on York’s positive global momentum,” says University President and Vice-Chancellor Rhonda Lenton. “The impressive results are a testament to the high quality, interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning that take place at York.” ■
