The purpose of this paper is to analyze the articulation between the concepts of governance and sustainability of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Recent research has found that the relationship between governance and sustainability has gained relevance among the academic community. This is partially explained by the question: How does governance and sustainability affect HEIs planning? Therefore, the paper focuses on examining different theoretical lenses from institutionalism to stakeholder theory in order to propose a model of integration. The integration underpins the triad of strategy, structure and culture. Although,  there are different positions on the role of governance in the scenario of HEIs, most of those posit it as a fundamental factor of change and survival. Overall, the proposed model aims to articulate elements such as stakeholders, accountability and sustainable objectives as part of the planning process.
