What is the Army Logistics University and Simulation Training Center?

The Army Logistics University vision includes a World-class research and student center, a state-of-the-art enterprise education management system, expanded partnerships with universities and colleges, and progressive degree programs.

The Army Logistics University opened its doors on July 2, 2009, as the premier lifelong learning center for the Army’s professional military, Civilian, joint, interagency, multinational, and intergovernmental partners within the sustainment community. The university provides a world-class research and student center, a state-of-the-art enterprise education management system, expanded partnerships with universities and colleges, and progressive degree programs.

ALU consolidates over 200 courses previously offered by five schools to educate sustainment leaders. The new organization is comprised of three distinct colleges, the College of Professional and Continuing Education (formally the Army Logistics Management College), the Logistics Leader College, and the Technical Logistics College, and a consolidated Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy. All of these organizations have a different focus, but share the same mission; to provide professional military education and key functional training to the Army’s sustainers: Civilians, officers, warrant officers and NCOs.

Equipped with reconfigurable rooms, video teleconferencing capabilities, a modern food court, bookstore, and an 18,000 square-foot logistics research and community library, the ALU will educate more than 2,300 students daily, and over 40,000 students annually.

Co-located with ALU is the Simulation Training Center which provides robust training capabilities supporting logistics units and Soldiers worldwide. STC supports simulation exercises, battle lab experiments, knowledge management events, lifelong learning, and sustainment education and training courses. In addition, it hosts a state-of-the-art Model Command Post and a world-class communications network capable of distributing exercises and events throughout the world.
