Did you know that the University of South Carolina has 1,000 Student Veterans on its campus? And did you know that the status of a veteran can reveal similar challenges of other historically marginalized groups? Because of the recent increase in this population on our campus, the SSC has developed the Green Zone Program. The purpose of the Green Zone Program is to train community members on the issues Student Veterans might face on college campuses. Green Zone Allies are not expected to be experts but they are a sympathetic ear and someone who can refer student veterans to campus resources. Departments can also contact us to schedule a customized training.
The SSC is offering 5 Green Zone Trainings this semester.
