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 student veterans. 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.

Certification Training

The certification training program has been designed to increase the knowledge and skills of the Armstrong faculty and staff to identify and address the needs of student veterans 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.

Veterans on Campus: Peer to Peer

Online interactive training simulations that teach student veterans how to mentor fellow military-affiliated students and help each other make a successful transition to life as a college student. The program also provides student veterans information about support services on and off campus.

Online Interactive Training Simulations

These simulations help faculty and staff in understanding the needs, experiences and cultural issues affecting student veterans as they transition from military to university and civilian life. This program also teaches users how to connect military-affiliated students to campus resources that can aid them in their transition and ensure they achieve their academic, professional, and life goals. Once registered, you will be able to access the web-based simulations at your convenience. If you would like to participate in our online interactive training, please email us at
