Abstract

This paper attempts to discuss the sustainable development of Bangladeshi higher education. There are many ways in which universities can be involved in sustainable development. Approaches can vary from functioning simply in an environmental friendly way to signing declarations and focusing the mission and management on the quest for sustainability. There is no doubt, however, that the challenge of sustainable development for universities goes beyond just economizing energy and changing operations. It is recognized that both the content and form of education must change so that sustainable development becomes the only alternative for future generations. However, the researcher tried to explore the role, coverage, way, importance, present status and other relevant issues under the sustainable development.

Keywords: Sustainability, Higher Education, Bangladesh
