Two Austin Peay State University ROTC cadets traveled abroad this summer to immerse themselves in different cultures and train with foreign militaries.

Ryan Lipinski, an APSU junior, spent a month in Bulgaria while Joshua Pollina, an APSU junior, traveled to a warmer climate in Greece. They were among approximately 1,400 cadets from Army ROTC programs who traveled on cultural missions in more than 40 countries as part of the Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) program.

The program is designed to immerse ROTC cadets in various languages, cultures and socio-economic situations so the cadets can learn and appreciate other worldviews.

The program is geared toward training better military leaders by educating cadets in world cultures, values and norms. This training will allow the cadets, as the Army’s future leaders, to function in a variety of complex circumstances in an ever-changing world.

For more information, contact the APSU Department of Military Science at 931-221-6156.
