we are addressing the sustainable development goals (sdgs) via three societal challenges of inclusive societies, healthy lives and sustainable environments. several research centres have been established as part of the drive to promote multi-disciplinary research and collaboration across schools, challenges and themes. healthy lives is the largest area of research at gcu and although the research groups within the centre for living are based at the school of health and life sciences, they also draw on major research being conducted in other schools and the yunus centre for social business and health.
at gcu we are proud to be ranked 40th in the world in the latest times higher education (the) university impact rankings for evidence of impact on sdg 3 good health and wellbeing and 13th in the world for sdg 8 decent work and economic growth and 20th in the world for sdg 10 reduced inequalities.
our case studies offer an insight into how we are making breakthroughs with some of today's challenges to ensure healthy lives for all.
