Green Zone Training is for faculty, students and staff who want to learn more about the military affiliated student experience. The goal is to train members of the UNI community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to support these students. 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. To register, contact Norman Ferguson.
