As part of its commitment to support military-affiliated students, Miami University offers Green Zone Training to faculty and staff. This program provides education about military culture and the challenges veterans may face as they transition from active duty service to college life.

Green Zone Training helps faculty and staff understand and empathize with military-affiliated students. It also gives faculty and staff an overview of the services and resources available to military-affiliated students so they know where to direct those who need help, such as with coursework, learning disabilities, and/or housing, family or medical issues.

“Green Zone” was the commonly used term for an area of central Baghdad, Iraq that was the governmental center of the Coalition Provisional Authority. It was officially known as the International Zone. Because it was heavily fortified, it was considered a “safe space.”

Miami’s program was created in 2016 by student veterans Adam Rose and Phillip Carr with assistance from staff members. Rose and Carr have since graduated. The program is based on the Safe Zone Training created to support the LGBTQ+ community.
