Global University Leaders Forum

The Global University Leaders Forum (GULF), a group of presidents from 29 world universities, was established in 2006. It acts as a community to address educational, scientific and research agendas.[1] The current GULF Chair is Suzanne Fortier, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University.[2] Membership is based on university ranking, individual leadership, geographical diversity, and the university's relevance to the forum's agenda.[3]

A 2018 report by Times Higher Education and Elsevier found that the then-27 GULF members produced 7% of the world's research output, more than any individual country except the United States and China, and are responsible for 15.4% of all research cited in patents, more than any individual country except the United States.[4][5][6]
