Abstract: The notion is sustainable, it is suggested that it is well established at the level of the whole society, which is attributed to education, everything is very important, but the role of higher education is a clearly more important decisive statement. Firstly the universities must become sustainable, and then to be reached a sustainable society. From the performed research activity, so far, we have identified a proposal for universities to become leaders. Even though a lot of debates are on-going about sustainable development, in Romania it’s acting at low level rates in the direction of both quantifying this concept and elaboration of a country specific model. There are very well known all the efforts put by the Romanian Statistics Institute on identifying of some indicators, for their own consolidation and, for collecting data and information. Romanian higher education system can take over the proposed indicators by other experienced countries or can come up with its own set of indicators. In the first case, it becomes possible not just status evaluation or the changes made, but also the comparison with other prestigious foreign universities. The chosen / applied indicators might be exploited to highlight all the progresses done by the universities on the everywhere of sustainable development and will allow decisive factors / entities to take correct solid decisions. Also, in this way the positive changes can be emphasized, which must be consolidated later.
