Over one hundred universities have signed and committed to international declarations to embed sustainability within their curriculum, research, operations, education and outreach. However, despite the policy developments and declarations at the national, regional and international level, not much has been achieved in terms of implanting education for sustainable development holistically under the curriculum. This paper signifies how universities can play a pivotal role in implementing sustainable development goals (SDGs). It recognises the benefit that universities have in responding to social challenges through their functions and operations, mainly through research, innovation and academic prowess. This research is a case study of a higher education institute under APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University. The analysis has been done through knowledge evaluation of 400 students in terms of marks obtained, and SDG Impact assessment from more than 70 projects submitted by students.
