Empathy

Empathy helps to create an environment in which students can take risks and feel supported. Teammates connect over the shared experience of trying and failing, which allows them to develop empathy for one another. The focus on peer-to-peer interaction is crucial to both the success of the group and students’ individual growth. As a result, student-athletes feel safe to take on challenges and push themselves to keep trying even when they miss the mark.
