ABSTRACT
Society is still in search for solutions leading to sustainable development, thus education for sustainable development aims, through knowledge and skills, to change human behaviour towards a more sustainable one in all aspects of socioeconomic life. In this context, universities must play a role of models and leaders in supporting, by all specific ways (strategic commitment, cross-disciplinary approach, integrated curriculum, scientific and applied research, active involvement in community life, university campus etc.), the change of the current thinking and acting paradigm. Following some landmarks in literature regarding the factors of successful change towards sustainability, we propose a research, using as methodology the thematic content analysis, on how Romanian universities commit and act in supporting change for sustainability.
