OU Green Zone

OU Green Zone is a network of faculty and staff who volunteer to take the extra step to provide assistance for those students who serve or have served our country. Each Green Zone member is an qualified expert in their specified area and will advise and guide you with questions relating to their area. 

Due to the nature of specificity included in some military benefits, you may need to reach out to a combination of people from academics and student services.

Not sure where to begin? Email veterans@ou.edu and we will help get you started on the right track.

So You Want to Join Green Zone?

To become an officially recognized OU Green Zone member, faculty and staff complete Green Zone Training by watching the OU Green Zone Training CC video, and subsequently submit their OU Green Zone form.

Additional training opportunities are offered annually. Once a member, you will receive email notifications detailing the next Green Zone training opportunity. Past training sessions:

  • 2015 Training - Service Demands of National Guard & Reserve Students
  • 2016 Training - Vocational Rehabilitation &  Employment Training
  • 2017 Training - Combat Veterans Initiative
  • 2018 Training - Serving OU Military Families Past Education
  • 2018 Military Appreciation Week Training-BP McCoy
  • 2019 Forever GI Bill® Overview Veterans Affairs Central Office
