The Green Zone workshop empowers participants to support military-connected students, staff and faculty and create change on campus. Over 1,000 students, staff, faculty and community members have participated in Green Zone workshop 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. 

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

"I can say that I learned a lot from (Green Zone). I didn’t think that I would, because of having worked so closely with the ARMY for two years, but I did!! I already knew, in the ARMY there are no excuses; just results. I already understood that when you say you will do something; it will be done, just like instructed, and in the allowed time; but I left the training having learned a great deal more." (Past Green Zone participant)
