Human Terrain Systems

ACGE was hired to recruit social scientists for the Human Terrain Systems program at colleges and universities throughout the United States. Human Terrain Systems (HTS) is an Army program designed to embed socio-cultural experts (civilians) with tactical commanders to integrate socio-cultural understanding into the military decision making process in Afghanistan.

ACGE also enriched the learning experience of the HTS candidates by exposing students to highly qualified instructors of applied socio-cultural research from top-tier academic institutions. This was accomplished by locating and bringing in Subject Matter Experts who are tenured professors at major universities to provide the most current research based knowledge to the students and training faculty.
