UNC Green Zone

About Green Zone Training

Green Zone is for faculty, staff, and students who wish to learn more about the military-affiliated student experience. The purpose of Green Zone is to train members of the Carolina community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military-affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to assist this population. Upon completion, participants will be able to lend a sympathetic ear and help student veterans identify and connect with the appropriate resources. Participants who complete the training will receive a sign to display in their office or a personal space of their choosing.

Green Zone is offered in a hybrid design. The training will be composed of two sections. Part I will be completed via asynchronous learning through PsychArmor and Part II will be conducted via Zoom.

Part I - PsychArmor

Part I consists of two modules. You will need to create an account at PsychArmor before you take the modules (we have arranged for all UNC affiliates to take these modules for free). This section of the training should take roughly one hour to complete and you can be finished at your own pace. Upon completion of Part 1, please email your certificate to MaDana Bivens at MaDanaBivens@unc.edu to remain enrolled in Part 2 of the training. The website offers more training modules, however, participants only need to complete the two modules listed below:

  1. 15 Things Veterans Would Like You to Know
  2. Veteran 101: DOD Overview 

Part II - Zoom

The second part of the training will be delivered virtually and will include three sections: PsychArmor modules reflection, UNC specific programs and data, and a student panel where you can ask current students about their experiences transitioning from the military to UNC.

To register, please select the training session you would like to attend from the list below (For Faculty, Staff, and Students):

All sessions will take place virtually.
