Green Zone Training

The Green Zone training program empowers participants to support military-connected students, staff and faculty and create change on campus. Nearly 1,000 students, staff, faculty and community members have participated in Green Zone training since 2013 to provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the veteran and military experience as well as develop tools to better serve these students. There is no cost associated with attending Green Zone training.

Attendees will:

  • Develop an understanding of military terminology and experience
  • Learn about the military-connected population at Purdue
  • Develop an understanding about the transition from the military to campus
  • Identify campus resources that can provide support to military-connected students

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.
