McMaster is a university with impact.

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call to action to end poverty and hunger, protect the planet, and ensure healthy lives, peace and prosperity by the year 2030.

At McMaster, we recognize our responsibility to address these goals as we work together – across disciplines and faculties, locally and globally – to create a healthier, brighter world.

A world that leaves no one behind.
