Green received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature from Douglas College in 1978, which was then the Women’s College of the Humanities, which was attached to Rutgers University.
In 2012, Green was elected Diverse: problems of higher education as one of our top 25 influential women nationally who are making major changes in higher education. In 2016, she was also a recipient of the Princeton YWCA Tribute to Women Award, which honors women of excellence who have made significant contributions to their work and the public.
