Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP)

Hundreds of Army ROTC cadets take advantage of the CULP program every year to travel the Earth.  Select cadets have the opportunity to experience different cultures, learn new customs, and achieve a greater understanding of our world view. The Army recognizes the need for leaders to adapt in different cultures and develop foreign language skills. In typical classroom settings, cadets cannot hope to achieve the full experience of another culture without actually being immersed within the country.
The CULP program allows cadets to compete for immersion in more than 30 countries. These experiences increase their language proficiency, cultural understanding, and help produce leaders of the future for the U.S. Army.
