Universities’ ability to demonstrate their social and environmental impact is more important than ever and, consequently, an increasing number of institutions now benchmark their impact against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Prince Sultan University (PSU) in Saudi Arabia is no exception and places Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of its mission. It has singled out a number of SDGs it feels to be most important to its student body, community and the future of the kingdom.
