4 Common Themes serving those who serve others Common Themes Clear need to assist student veterans in their transition, and a lack of money to fund the necessary programs for student veterans Support and buy-in from executive leadership is crucial to the success of the program Having some with former military experience leading efforts in the school is key Mentorship from faculty/staff to student veterans is key Surveys are important to assess how the Green Zone is affecting student veterans It is still difficult to measure retention rates, but a focus exists in doing so changing information systems to properly capture these metrics are critical Female veterans often face different issues than male veterans; consideration for classes specific to women veterans is recommended
