Armstrong Green Zone

How to Get Involved

Who is the Green Zone training program for?

The Green Zone training program is specifically designed to train faculty and staff in an effort to provide additional support for Veteran students. In the present stage of the Green Zone Program, the training is not for military-affiliated students to become active participants; rather beneficiaries from the trained faculty and staff volunteers.

How long will it take?

The training program has been designed to increase the knowledge and skills of the Armstrong faculty and staff to identify and address the needs of Veteran students and assist them in successfully completing their transition from the military to university and civilian life. The training is conducted in three phases on different days. The program begins with a one-hour brief that will provide an overview of the program. The second phase is a five-hour field trip to Hunter Army Airfield where participants will get to see a day in the life a Solider by participating in physical training (optional), receiving a command brief, taking a tour of the installation, seeing equipment displays, participating in simulations and eating lunch with Service Members. The final phase of the training will be a four-hour block of instruction conducted by external agencies that will provide participants the tools they need to provide a sympathetic ear to student veterans and help them find the appropriate resource to resolve their issue.
