Culture and Language Awareness Program
The Department of the Army is currently developing a comprehensive strategy to define, assess, and train culture and language proficiency skills. Part of this strategy is expected to address how Cadet Command increases Cadet language learning exposure. Cultural awareness training is already incorporated into our curriculum, at LDAC, and now via many more overseas culture immersion internship opportunities. Increase number of Cadet cultural immersion opportunities using existing programs to minimize additional resource requirements. Participating Cadets develop culture awareness skills and appreciation of cultural differences and recognize potential impact on assigned missions. UofA Cadets have participated in this program in recent years and have traveled to countries such as Greece, Russia, Morocco, Egypt, Vietnam and Indonesia.
