Green Zone

Military Student Services offers Green Zone training to members of the Virginia Commonwealth University community who want to learn more about the military student experience. The program trains faculty and staff to support veterans and their families as they transition to academic life.

The program was pioneered at VCU in 2010 by Ann Nichols-Casebolt, Ph.D., and is now offered at more than 100 universities and organizations nationwide.

Green Zone participants agree to:

  • Attend a 1.5-hour workshop that provides information and resources related to student veteran issues
  • Display the Green Zone sticker outside their office to let others know they can provide support and information about resources for student veterans
  • Serve as a resource to other faculty, staff or students who have questions about student veteran issues

View our events calendar for upcoming dates, and visit VCU Training to register.
Also, check out or resource for mental health veteran services. VA has a variety of mental health resources, information, treatment options, and more — all accessible to Veterans, Veterans’ supporters, and the general public. 

For more information or to set up training, contact Stephen Ross, director of Military Student Services, at or (804) 827-8730.
