Abstract : The purpose of this technical report is to describe and document the history, operation, and learning objectives of the Leadership Reaction Course (LRC) at the United States Air Force Academy. Because there is no single location for this information to date, this report will serve as a comprehensive collection of available documentation on the history, purpose, and operation of the LRC. In addition to documenting the operation of the LRC, this report provides a foundation for future research efforts into the effectiveness of the LRC as an experiential 'low ropes' course. To provide a comprehensive account of the LRC, this report includes a brief introduction to the principles of experiential learning, a summary of major events in the history of the LRC, and a physical and procedural description of the course. This report also explains how the course is presently being used and concludes with a description of the learning objectives the LRC attempts to achieve.
