About Us

The Defense Language and National Security Educational Office (DLNSEO) Culture Section serves within the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness of the Department of Defense (DoD).

Our strategic vision is to provide direction to enable a Total Force to be ready and adept at interacting across any culture while operating within joint, Interagency, coalition and multinational contexts. In order to achieve this, our goals include:

  • Developing policies to support culture readiness across the Department
  • Advancing culture education and training in the Total Force
  • Promoting collaboration and partnership to create efficiencies
  • Supporting development of cultural competency in the Federal workforce

We work to support culture readiness throughout the Total Force by providing information to better assess operational needs and policy development. In accordance with the Strategic Plan for Total Force Readiness, the DLNSEO Culture Section identifies efficiencies across the Total Force, industry, and academe to ensure collaborations for resources, technology solutions, and research efforts.

Our site represents a virtual community of people who are passionate about all matters regarding culture learning, awareness, and readiness. This website allows users to access materials from across the Total Force, industry, and academe, providing awareness of any issues affecting the world wide culture community.

The DLNSEO Culture Section is ever determined to make learning about and interacting across any culture a priority for the Total Force.
