Abstract
Besides the economic growth, development activities often produced unexpected negative impacts on decreasing the quality of life, health problems, and environmental damage, including land degradation, soil erosion, air, and water as well as soil pollution. In general, environmental damage occurred caused directly or indirectly by humans (anthropogenic). The role of higher education was very important, not only encouraged students to protect their environment, but also to spread environmental knowledge for their families, communities, and contribute to enabling a sustainable global environment and society to protect the earth. A university as a higher education institution has a very important role in providing environmental education, research, and outreach program. Data used in this study was taken with the purposive sampling of non-probability sampling technique through environmental field assessment study. This paper discussed an assessment of the environment in the field to understand the challenge and opportunity to better implementation of assessment and behavior change in protecting the environment. The field assessments were taken place in Kabupaten Cianjur and Kabupaten Bogor of West Java in the year 2017 and 2018.
