Today we heard from the Swedish Higher Education Authority (link in Swedish) that Uppsala University has well-developed procedures for its work on sustainable development in education. This is the first thematic evaluation in the quality assurance system for the period 2017–2022. The Authority’s report reveals that only 12 of the 47 higher education institutions evaluated receive the assessment “The higher education institution has a well-developed procedure for its work on sustainable development in education”, i.e., a passing grade, in all three of the evaluation’s aspect areas. The other 35 higher education institutions receive the assessment “The higher education institution’s procedure for its work on sustainable development is in need of development”. Naturally we take pride in this positive assessment and are happy at the recognition of these efforts, to which so many have contributed. Well done! This will energise and inspire us in our ongoing work.
