Faculty and Staff Green Zone Training (Virtual)

Green Zone training aims to educate faculty and staff about military service and ways to support military and veteran students. 

What is Green Zone Training?

Green zone training is an initiative for diversity training that highlights Veterans' experiences in higher education. Pioneered at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in 2010, Green Zone training is now offered at more than 100 universities and organizations nationwide.

Green Zone training aims to educate faculty and staff about military service and ways to support military and veteran students.

Green Zone is named for the secure international zone in Baghdad, Iraq, and the logo is a universal image recognized by all branches of the military.

Green Zone Allies are not expected to be experts or mental health counselors; Green Zone Allies are a sympathetic ear and someone who can refer a student veteran to appropriate on-campus resources.
