CAOCL has two principal education activities: (1) the Regional, Culture, and Language Familiarization (RCLF) Program and (2) educational programming, scientific advising, and support to the Marine Corps University (MCU) and the broader supporting establishment. CAOCL’s education activities are organized along three conceptual lines: culture-general concepts and skills, region- and culture-specific knowledge, and foreign language skills. Culture-general refers to concepts and skills that can be employed in any area of operations. Region- and culture-specific entails those unique aspects of cultures and regional dynamics across the Combatant Commands. Language familiarization focuses on tactical phrases in key languages necessary to promote operational effectiveness. These three conceptual lines are complementary and provide Marines the tools they need to navigate the cultural complexities of contemporary operating environments and mission sets.
