Project GO Returns to UT
Posted: August 21, 2012
Project GO (Global Officers), formerly known as the ROTC Language and Culture Project, is a collaborative initiative that promotes critical language education, study abroad, and intercultural dialogue opportunities for ROTC students. The Department of Middle Eastern Studies joins the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies to reestablish Project GO at UT to support ROTC students studying Arabic, Russian, and Turkish. DMES previously held a grant to support the ROTC Language and Culture Project in Arabic and Persian from 2007 to 2010.
Project GO at UT will offer ROTC students flexible study options in these critical languages, entailing various combinations of academic-year and summer study to work within the limitations of the ROTC schedule. The project will fund a mentorship program for ROTC students in Arabic, Russian, and Turkish classes, and provide scholarships for summer study and study abroad in Russian, Morocco, or Turkey.
