On July 12, Johnson College’s Veteran Task Force offered a Green Zone Training for faculty and staff so they could become more familiar with military life. The training highlighted experiences of student veterans, service members, and their families in higher education. The faculty and staff in attendance volunteered to become an empathetic ear and a guide for resources for student veterans, service members, and their family members on campus. Green Zone Training is a 2-hour session that consists of an informational presentation as well as a discussion and Q&A with current student veterans and their family members.
Johnson College currently serves numerous veteran students and continues to become more military friendly. The College is a certified Yellow Ribbon School and offers the Post 9/11 GI Bill® to those who qualify. For more information on veteran services or benefits, please visit www.johnson.edu/veterans.
