© 2018 Proceedings of the European Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, ECIE. All rights reserved. The Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI, 2017a) states that higher education institutions (HEIs) are integrating the SDGs into sustainability strategies in the form of research, teaching, pedagogy, and campus practices, and to position HEIs as key drivers for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Concern has been raised (HESI, 2017b) as to the potential impact of HEIs in helping to achieve the SDGs; the challenges faced by HEIs with integrating the SDGs into curriculum and institutional strategies; the role of partnerships for HEIs among students, faculty, government, and various stakeholders; and how the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the SDGs, will transform the work of HEIs. According to CASE (2017) "⋯ the need of new ways of teaching and learning⋯includes sustainable entrepreneurial education." This paper reviews progress of a sample of n=307 signatories to the HESI and identifies implications for practice.
