For ROTC Students, CULP is a program that allows the world to be their classroom! CULP provides the students with many opportunities to travel abroad in more than 40 countries to learn about other cultures. Students will be immersed in the cultures, learning about how others around the world view the U.S. During their studies, students will experience one to three different settings, including humanitarian services, host nation military-to-military interactions and education on the social, cultural and historical aspects of the country. This immersion into different countries is to hopefully expose students to the successes and struggles that those countries have had to face, and in the process, learn more about themselves.
