Overview of ALU Resources

army policy on culture language in pme
Army Policy on Culture & Language in PME
  • The Army… requires developing Soldiers who understand… foreign societies & cultures…. and...career development to achieve the C&FL capabilities necessary for FSO. (ALC)
  • Entry-level leaders will “have sufficient knowledge of geo‐politics, culture, language, & IO to recognize the need to consult experts.” Junior leaders “will gain an increasingly more sophisticated understanding of geo‐politics, culture, language, &IO.” (ALDS)
  • The human dimension… necessitates that Soldiers at all levels possess some C&FL capability. It is no longer sufficient for limited numbers… in specialized skill sets & units to solely possess these. (ATLD)
  • End State: Army with right blend of C&FL capabilities to facilitate FSO,… to effectively conduct operations w/ & among other cultures.

Army has developed resources for use in both: WWW, CD/DVD, printed, and face-to-face

Individual and collective learning about cultures is a Soldier responsibility, as codified in ALC, ALDS, etc.

ALU features resources to aid you in courses and self-development. These resources are the CFLA, kiosk materials, and computer-based materials.

These resources are meant to serve you here, and cultivate an ability to assess and integrate in ARFORGEN.
