Green Zone (GZ)

GZ Mission Statement

For our student veterans, transitioning into student life is often difficult, particularly those who have recently returned home from active duty and are still transitioning to civilian life overall. Unlike the structured environment of the military, universities like UNG have a wide array of schools, departments and administrative areas that can be difficult to navigate.  Green Zone training is to assist members of the UNG community in promoting a greater understanding of the challenges military students may face as they transition from military to student life.  In conjunction with this, is to identify individuals who are available to assist this diverse population. These individuals are not expected to be experts who can “solve problems.” They are individuals who can lend a sympathetic ear and help the student veteran identify and connect with the appropriate resources.

GZ Vision

To develop a very visible network of faculty and staff across all UNG campuses whom military students can go to receive assistance.  This network can also be a resource to other faculty, staff or students who may have questions about student veteran issues.  This visibility of trained community members helps send a message to the campus that our community cares, which in turn will have a positive effect on the success of these military students!

GZ Goals

  • To make UNG a more veteran-helpful university.
  • Prepare university faculty and staff to better understand the experience of veterans, military service members and their families at UNG.
  • The ultimate goal of the Green Zone training is to support student veterans in their academic pursuits.
  • Help faculty and staff provide supportive services necessary to ensure that veteran students are successful in their academic pursuits, adjust to the campus environment, and eventually transition to civilian employment.
  • To develop a Veteran Liaison Network at UNG.
  • A way to be supportive and give back to those who have sacrificed for others.
  • The ultimate goal od the Green Zone training is to support student veterans in their academic pursuits.
