Green Zone Initiative

Green Zone is to train members of the Carthage community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military-affiliated students and to identify the ways in which they can be supported both inside and outside the classroom as they make their way through their college education. To better serve these students at Carthage, this training will focus on the retention, academic support, and assets that these highly motivated students bring to their Carthage education.
