There's No "I" in "Team": Lessons from Athletics on Community Building.
Wolf-Wendel, Lisa E.; Toma, J. Douglas; Morphew, Christopher C.
Review of Higher Education, v24 n4 p369-96 Sum 2001
Explored how athletics meets the challenges associated with creating a community out of difference and how its processes can serve as a model for higher education. Interviews revealed traits that facilitate community-building: team members share a common goal; engage in intense, frequent interaction; share adversity; have a common enemy; and recognize that each individual has something important to contribute.
