Ryan Ahl, outreach program specialist, Veterans Administration
Amber Korcok, management technician, Transfer Admissions and Orientation

Veteran and military students face unique challenges including navigating earned benefits across multiple agencies, transitioning from the military to a campus environment, and just being nontraditional students. Green Zone training is designed to provide faculty and staff with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the veteran and military experience as well as developing tools and resources to better serve our military affiliated students.

GI BILL® 101 provides a brief explanation of the different chapters of GI BILL® and the differences that military-affiliated students have in regard to using their GI BILL®. It is important for faculty and staff to know the differences so they can better advise and support students to solve educational issues. Faculty and staff wishing to be military liaisons are encouraged to attend.

John Golden, assistant professor, School of Business and managing director, SEA. Most of us do not listen with the intent to understand. Rather, we listen with the intent to respond with everything getting filtered through our own experiences. Empathic listening is different. The basic principle is to “seek first to understand before being understood.” This workshop will teach specific listening techniques that will not only help you to develop important personal and professional relationships, but also help you manage and avoid disruption and insulting behaviors. This workshop is packed with opportunities to learn, develop skills and have fun.

Jennifer Willford, associate professor, Psychology

Life really is about the journey. According to “Designing Your Life” co-authors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, “the design thinking approach lends itself especially well to the challenge of designing your life and vocation, large and vaguely defined tasks, because it allows you to start where you are – and build from there.” Throughout life, we are presented with opportunities in life and career that allow us to try a few things and learn as we go. The steps along the way are prototypes to learn from and enjoy; they are not failures. This session introduces faculty, staff and students to design thinking and how to apply it to their lives and careers.
