For Army ROTC Cadets, the world is their classroom. Every year hundreds of Cadets travel the globe, spend part of their summer in foreign cultures, learning more about how others around the world view the U.S. and, in the process, learning more about themselves.
Listed below are some of the opportunities:
The Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Program
- The intent of this program is to provide Cadets overseas culture and language immersion opportunities through military-to-military (mil-to-mil) engagements and/or humanitarian service projects, as well as, visits to historically significant sites and serendipitous culture immmersion opportunities. Itineraries are host country dependent and vary. Mil-to-mil engagements involve training with junior leaders and/or Cadets of host country military academies. Humanitarian service projects may involve work to at orphanages or hospices or other on-going projects. The duration of these internships is approximately three weeks, including travel time. Several days of academic, administrative, and logistical preparation prepare teams prior to deployments.
