Green Zone Training

Jamie Richards presenting the Green Zone training

Veteran and military students face unique challenges such as difficulty navigating earned benefits across multiple agencies—including the GIBILL, transitioning from the military to a campus environment, and hurdles related to 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.

The training is free, but registration is required. Individuals who are interested in the two-hour workshop may sign up for any of the following sessions, as space permits:

  • Monday, July 16, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 in RAWL 1071
  • Wednesday, August 8, 2018 from 9:00-11:00 in GRIS 134
  • Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 in LWSN 1142

  • Tuesday, November 27, 2018 from 9:00-11:00 in PAO B157

When you register, if the session you wish to attend is not visible then the session is full.
