Summary/Abstract: Any valid university curriculum proposes educational goals proper for the evolution of the society. The university education system is not separated from the real world but it is a kind of sub-system of the universal social system and is continuously under the pressure of the changes at the level of the macro-system. In the present paper we aimed at approaching the main coordinates of undertaking such a role, in the context of the evolution of the society at national or universal level. We also aimed at emphasizing the consequences of the principle of connecting the university education to the social, in the context created by applying the Strategy of Lisabona and the Bologna Process. The changes that have taken place during the last years in the Romanian society, together with the process of integration in supra-national structures generated the necessity for a profound reform of the university education system. Analyzing the general directions of reforming the Romanian University Curriculum we emphasized that such a reform does not imply only changes of structure, content, purpose, methods and means but also the change of the organizational culture at the level of which there are to be found the representations related to education.
