    Abstract Higher education is often idealized as a tool for implementing sustainable development. Yet the structures of higher education institutions (HEIs) often inhibit the types of problem solving and pedagogical design that are needed to advance the sustainable development agenda. Policymakers, both within government ministries overseeing higher education and within HEIs themselves, should better streamline and coordinate communication on global, national, and local sustainable development priorities.
