Over the last few years many universities globally are starting to carry out regular impact reviews and embed annual impact reporting in their existing reporting frameworks to demonstrate to external stakeholders - including prospective students, government, funders and the community - how they are contributing to global and local wellbeing, and, in order showcase their impact, achievements and relevance. This is of course more prominent in countries where there is existing reporting requirements from funders - such as REF2021 (UK), EI2018 (Australia), RAE 2020 (Hong Kong) - however, a growing number of universities in other countries are doing this simply as a form of best practice, for example, by reporting on their sustainability initiatives.

University impact reports tend to be broader than just research impact, they could be an amalgamation of the impact of various areas of an university's operations, such as teaching, student led activities, estates and recycling. Similarly, there can be many different approaches, based on purpose, focus and scope, to internal impact reviews.
