Green Zone: Military Cultural Competency Training

Ann Treadaway (Director, Rutgers Office of Veteran & Military Programs and Services)
Bryan Adams (Assistant Director, Rutgers Office of Veteran and Military Programs and Services)

In interviews conducted with students who have served in the military at colleges and universities across the country, a common theme emerged. These students felt as if the campus community did not respect, understand, or appreciate their service which made them less likely to identify themselves. Military affiliated students expressed feeling as if they were judged unfairly because of their service and for some, the way in which the media portrays the military is to blame. This seminar will examine military culture and challenge these stereotypes in order to foster the creation of a more knowledgeable and welcoming campus community.
