Recently, In Spite of the tremendous progress of Iran, the Scientific outputs of a variety of disciplines has not so extended to application; a subject that affected by the role of Government as principal role player in the public sector. Higher Education Policies are among important artifacts of government roles in this field, which perception of their Causal relation and loops is prerequisite for their Implementation. This paper is going to analyze the University-Industry relation in the Fifth Development Plan Using System Dynamics. So the Modeling Process has based on Expert consensus through Delphi Method. The Results show that regarding Time Delays, Reinforcing and Balancing loops has so influence on plans cohesion. Finally based on simulation of critical variables, some suggestions have been presented to Improvement of policies.
