A VCU-founded program, Green Zone supports veterans and military students on campus. Developed at VCU in 2010, the program gives university staff and faculty in-depth insight into the complexities faced by our military students, and is now offered at colleges and universities across the country.

I like how veteran-friendly the VCU administration is, and how it works to provide support for those transitioning out of the service and into college life.
