This article presents results of the research whose aim was to determine attitudes of higher education institutions (HEIs) in Poland towards cooperation with the socio-economic environment at the regional level. Missions and strategies available on HEIs’ websites were examined using one of sociological research methods – content analysis. The collected documents were subjected to a quantitative and qualitative analysis to identify the directions and areas of this cooperation. The study conducted showed a strong connection between the commitment to regional development processes and the type of HEI (public academic HEIs, state higher vocational schools and private HEIs).
