Green Zone Training Initiative

A “Green Zone” is a location recognized by veterans as a safe place. Student veterans and service members are a diverse group of individuals, ranging in age, race/ethnicity, gender, and backgrounds.  Please join UMW Green Zone volunteers in the Magnolia Room of the University Center on Wednesday, Feb. 22, from noon to 1:30 p.m. for an open discussion on working with student veterans and service members and assisting them with the transition to student life.  At 12:45, we will turn the discussion over to a panel of student veterans for their perspective on transitioning from the military to a college campus.

As of this past spring, Virginia ranked fourth in states with the most active duty and reserve members of the military. It’s imperative that UMW staff and faculty educate themselves about working with student veterans and service members.

*Please feel free to bring your lunch to this training session.
