The higher education system (HES) consists of universities and research institutions. It is a training base for high-quality talents and a vital source of scientific and technological innovation, so the sustainability of higher education system (SS) should be highly valued. The research selects the HES of 50 countries, which is relatively complete. To measure the SS, the research compares the higher education system with the natural ecosystem, and find that the key is the efficient circulation. In innovation activities, universities, research institutions and enterprises have formed a circulation in the flow of innovation elements such as funds, talents and innovation achievements. Therefore, the research propose the collaborative innovation efficiency of University- Research-Industry (URI) as an indicator to measure SS. To quantify SS, established a network data envelopment analysis (DEA) model. The research used five input indicators, one intermediate indicator and three output indicators, which have a certain degree of innovation. The results show that although no country’s HES is completely sustainable, SS in developed countries such as the United States is at the forefront. Finally, the research gives some policy suggestions to improve the sustainability of HES.
