13th AUN Rectors’ Meeting: UI GreenMetrics, The Ranking System that Propels University Healthiness and Sustainability with Competition and Cooperation

Dr. Agustin Kusumayati, M.Sc., Ph.D. presented the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking, a system where Universities are ranked based on how well they promote healthiness, as well as how “green” or sustainable the entire institution is. Such a ranking system drives competition within universities and gives motivation to keep improving infrastructure quality. It also leads to cooperation because at the heart of it all, competition or not, universities are working together to see the quality of living improve for all people around the world. The best of the best Universities do not rest at only providing education to the people. They strive to provide more benefits to society beyond just teaching.
