Green Zone Training
Mar 16 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Since the Post-9/11 GI Bill, additional opportunities for veterans to earn a college degree have resulted in a dramatic influx of veterans on college campuses. The process of transitioning from the military to civilian life can pose challenges for all service members, veterans and their families. In order for advisors, faculty, staff and peers to better serve this population of students, they all need to be aware of the potential challenges a service member, student veteran and their families might face when attending college.

Modeled on the “Safe Zone” program, Green Zone is designed for faculty, staff and students to receive training about issues potentially facing active service members, student veterans and their families. Training will provide faculty, staff, and students with an understanding of the military experience of military connected students and families as they transition from the military to campus life. This training opportunity will also bring awareness of community resources available to military connected students and families on and off our campus.

Participants who complete the training will receive a sign to display in their office and have their name listed on our website as having completed the training.

Green Zone Training will provide participants with the following:
– An understanding of the military experience and emotional cycle of deployment.
– An understanding of the potential issues facing undergraduate student veterans as they transition from the military to our campus.
– An awareness of the resources available to undergraduate student veterans and their families on and off our campus.
– A Top Ten Green Zone tips worksheet that addresses challenges that military connected students and families face at NC State.

Green Zone Allies are not expected to be experts or mental health counselors. Green Zone Allies are a sympathetic ear and someone who can refer a student veteran to appropriate on-campus resources.
If you would like to schedule a training specifically for your department, office, organization, or group please contact Tracey Ray, Assistant Vice Provost for Student Diversity at 919.515.9243 or at teray@ncsu.edu.

Class Inequality and the Quest for Equal Opportunity
Mar 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Course Description:
In contrast to the popular conception of class inequality as the outcome of an individualistic, meritocratic process, we offer a competing conception based on the exploitation of human labor and labors struggle to overcome it. We examine how and why class inequality has been increasing rapidly today. We also see how class inequality works to prevent the achievement of racial and gender equality.
