詹姆斯库克大学“促进目标实现的伙伴关系”位列全球第1位

泰晤士高等教育世界大学影响力排名根据联合国可持续发展目标 (UN Sustainable Development Goals) 对全球大学的社会和经济影响进行排名。詹姆斯库克大学在“促进目标实现的伙伴关系”中名列世界第一。

17个联合国可持续发展目标旨在成为一个以可持续方式塑造世界的框架。这些目标于2015年被制定,致力于在2030年实现,作为联合国2030年可持续发展议程的一部分。目标包括获得干净的水源和消除贫困与饥饿。我们认识到,消除贫困必须与改善健康和教育、减少不平等和促进经济增长齐头并进。

在伙伴关系领域,詹姆斯库克大学得分高达99.2,在806所院校中排名第一。

詹姆斯库克大学教务长Professor Chris Cocklin指出,可持续发展是大学教学和研究的基础,也是作为热带地区大学的核心角色。“理解这些目标之间的相互关联很重要。实现健康似乎是护士和医生的关注点,但它也需要关注与健康相关的社会决定因素,如教育和贫困。这些关联点使‘促进目标实现的伙伴关系’对实现联合国2030年议程至关重要。”

Professor Cocklin认为,这一排名证明了詹姆斯库克大学的员工、学生和毕业生,以及许多我们与之合作的社区、机构和个人取得的卓越成果。“例如,我们的‘热带现状’项目已经发现,来自全球各地的研究人员在近十年的时间里共同努力,致力于评估和改善热带地区的生活质量。”

詹姆斯库克大学全球发展硕士项目 (Master of Global Development) 讲师Dr Kearrin Sims认为,大学非常强调工作与学习的结合,使得所有学生都把实践和实习作为学业的一部分。Dr Sims同时是澳大利亚发展研究协会执行委员会成员和詹姆斯库克大学可持续发展工作组成员。

“大学的全球发展硕士生向领域实践者学习,并能在当地伙伴和区域伙伴那里获得实践经验,其中包括晨曦基金会、凯恩斯地方灾害协调中心、远北昆士兰土著管理员和环境组织。在不同文化和不同学科之间,在政府、业界、社区和学术界之间,在相互尊重、富有成效的合作关系中工作——这是学生们专业准备的重要部分。为了实现可持续发展目标,我们必须建立从地方到全球范围的伙伴关系。”

The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings recognise universities around the world for their social and economic impact, based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). James Cook University has been ranked #1 in the world for its commitment to sustainable development through global partnerships.

The 17 Goals are intended as a framework for developing the world in a sustainable way. They were set in 2015 as part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, intended to be achieved by 2030.

For Goal 17, which relates to partnerships, JCU scored 99.2 of a possible 100, and was ranked No. 1 out of 806 institutions.

The Goals include access to clean water and an end to poverty and hunger. They recognize that ending deprivation must go hand-in-hand with improving health and education, reducing inequality and fostering economic growth.

JCU Provost, Professor Chris Cocklin, said sustainable development underpins much of JCU’s teaching and research, and is central to its role as a university for the Tropics.

“It’s important to understand the interconnectedness of these goals,” he said. “Achieving good health might seem the obvious focus for nurses and doctors, but it also requires attention to the social determinants of health, such as education and poverty. Those intersections make Goal 17, working in partnerships, critical to the success of 2030 Agenda.”

Professor Cocklin said the ranking was testament to JCU staff, students and graduates, and the many communities, organisations and individuals they collaborate with.

“Our State of the Tropics project, for example, has seen researchers from across the globe working together for almost a decade to assess and improve quality of life in the Tropics,” he said.

Dr Kearrin Sims, convenor of JCU’s Master of Global Development, said JCU’s strong emphasis on work-integrated learning sees students across the University undertaking internships and placements as part of their courses.

Dr Sims is a member of the Executive Committee for the Development Studies Association of Australia and chairs JCU’s Sustainable Development Working Group.

“Our Master of Global Development students learn from development practitioners and gain hands-on experience with local and regional partners including the Aurora Foundation, the Cairns Local Disaster Coordination Centre, Far North Queensland Indigenous Rangers and environmental organisations.

“Working in respectful, productive partnerships across different cultures and different disciplines, between government, industry, community and academia – that’s an essential part of their professional preparation. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we have to build those partnerships from a local to a global scale.”
