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 Student Success Center has developed the Green Zone Ally Program. The purpose of the Green Zone Ally 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.
The Student Success Center is now offering an online training to become a Green Zone Ally. To register for the online training, please complete this wufoo form: http://www.sa.sc.edu/ssc/tsspsupport/green-zone/. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact Paul Millard, Coordinator of Transfer & Special Student Population Services.
