Green Zone Training: Creating a Safe Space for Student Veterans
Start Date: 1/21/2016Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 1/21/2016End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description:

Green Zone is a training program developed to increase faculty and staff awareness of military and veteran culture.  The primary goal of this program is to increase knowledge and awareness of members of the Suffolk community to issues and factors faced by veterans, which are often invisible.  

 By the end of the session, attendees will be able to recognize issues facing veterans on campus; distinguish transitional difficulties from cognitive difficulties; engage student veterans with more understanding; provide appropriate advice and support; and assist in their academic pursuit.

 Attendees are not expected to become “experts” on veterans’ issues, or relied on to solve problems.  Rather, the hope is that individuals will be compelled to engage student veterans with respect, understanding, and empathy.  Green Zone was developed using the “Safe Zone” Program model - intended to provide safe spaces on college campuses, and positively impact campus climate.

Facilitated by Michael Smith, Associate Director, Veterans Upward Bound
