عنوان مقاله [English]
Education is the most effective mechanism for dealing with one of the biggest
challenges of this century, i.e., sustainable development. Sustainable
development needs a holistic human being with systemic thinking and
interdisciplinary and intra-disciplinary vision who is informed, creative and
participatory. Production of such qualified human resources needs high quality
elements and factors of the educational system (input, process, output, and
outcome) in line with sustainable development. Higher education and expert
human resources play a key role in sustainable development of any societies.
Universities, as places for study and research, should strive for sustainable
development. Higher education should acquire the best way to exploit limited
resources and facilities. In this article, developing a model for assuring the
quality of higher education system in order to reach sustainable development
based on systems approach is discussed. To reach sustainable development, we
should provide coordination and interaction among the parts of development. A
descriptive-analytic method, similar to library studies, is used in this article.
