The Military Service Center, the College of Nursing and the College of Health and Human Services are hosting Green Zone training to discuss how faculty and staff can support military-connected students at UToledo.

The one-hour training is scheduled Wednesday, Nov. 10, from 1 to 2 p.m. in Rocket Hall Room 1530 on Main Campus, and from 4 to 5 p.m. in Collier Building Room 1050 on Health Science Campus.

Faculty and staff will hear from a student Q&A panel that will cover topics such as who are military-connected students, military education benefits, handling deployments and activations, what the Military Service Center offers and UToledo special programs and services.

The Military Service Center recommends that faculty and staff retake Green Zone training every two years.

“Our goal is not to make everyone on campus an expert on military students but to lay the groundwork for effective communication between military-connected students and university staff,” said Eric Buetikofer, director of military and veteran affairs. “Our hope is that students will be more willing to talk with faculty and staff who have gone through the training and that they will be more comfortable with referring students to university resources.”
