Academics for Veterans (A’s for Vets) and LVMAC Invite You to Participate in Green Zone Training

Named for the secure international zone in Baghdad, Iraq, this professional development program is designed for higher education administrators, faculty, and staff.  This program will assist attendees in developing a supportive network and campus community for veterans, active service members, and their families. Green Zone training has been adopted nationwide by universities and colleges to assist military students as they navigate the complexities of today’s educational environment.
