The Millennium Development Goals agenda summarized in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is over. For fifteen years—from September 2000 to 2015—189 Member States of the United Nations carried out the program with the main target being the achievement of people’s welfare and community development by 2015. However, there are still many targets that have not been achieved in the MDGs. For the sustainability of the program, now the MDGs have been replaced with a global development model based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The global development model has been discussed since 2012 at the Rio+20 summit which produced the document “The Future We Want”. In this document, the SDGs are listed along with directions on the importance of three dimensions of sustainable development, namely economic, social and environmental that must synergize in global development going forward. Based on the document, the SDGs must meet four principles, namely first, it does not undermine the international commitment to achieving the MDGs; second, it considers the conditions, capacities and priorities of each country; third, it focuses on achieving the three dimensions of sustainable development (economic development, social development and environmental protection). The latter is coherent and integrated with post-2015 development. Indonesia is a large country that continues to race in carrying out development in various fields of interest and obligation in succeeding this SDGs. To meet and face the SDGs, of course, preparation is needed involving many parties, including one of the college institutions.
