Green Zone Training

All Green Zone events scheduled between March 16th - May 2nd have been suspended. Visit the Veterans Success Center's main page for more information regarding operations, services, and resources. 

Veteran and military students face unique challenges such as navigating earned benefits across multiple agencies—including the GIBILL, transitioning from the military to a campus environment, and often just being nontraditional students. Green Zone awareness training is designed to provide faculty and staff with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the veteran and military experience as well as develop tools to better serve these students. At the end of the training you will receive a badge you can display indicating you are a trained member of the Green Zone.

Also offered in the Fall and Spring is a Green Zone Student Panel. The panel is made up of students from varying backgrounds; veteran, active duty, reserve or National Guard, ROTC, and family member. The panel is moderated with an opportunity for Q&A.

The following are some links if you wish to familiarize yourself before attending a training:
