The Aggie Green Zone is designed to help develop a supportive and understanding environment for our military and veteran student community where students can feel welcomed, trusted, and supported. The Aggie Green Zone will provide faculty and staff members the knowledge and skills to identify and address the needs of students and to assist them in successfully completing their transition from military to university and civilian life. The Aggie Green Zone training is a virtual 30-minute training simulation. As a way of thanking you, for completing the training, you will receive a Certificate of Appreciation and a MVP Proud Supporter button.
Those who complete the training and agree to be a Green Zone Ally will receive a Aggie Green Zone designation. A Green Zone Ally is someone who our military and veteran students can reach out to for help and guidance at New Mexico State University. Green Zone Allies are not expected to be experts in military and veteran services, but they can lend a sympathetic ear and connect the student with appropriate resources within the campus or in the community.
We appreciate and recognize our Allies by listing their name and contact information on the Aggie Green Zone page on our website. In recognition for being an Ally, you will receive a Aggie Green Zone sticker to proudly display in your office area. Should you agree to become a Aggie Green Zone Ally, please let us know!
Green Zone Allies are faculty and staff who:
- Understand the military experience, including the emotional cycle of deployment, the challenges of transitions to campus life, and the experience of military family members
- Manage a classroom discussion around issues sensitive to military and veterans students
- Recognize common indicators of post-deployment stress, including signs of PTSD, and, if necessary, refer them to on- and off-campus support services
- Summarize the unique strengths of military and veteran students
