Community colleges and universities all over the world are continually seeking new methods for enhancing the team environment within the corporate infrastructure. Several decades ago college campuses were not as eager to group students together for the sake of becoming lifelong learners; instead students relied on the pure solitude of individualism. Students were forced to take on more responsibilities and completed tasks all by themselves or with the assistance of a tutor or mentor. Consequently, students ended up cramming excessive amounts of information at the last minute in order to pass exams, which ultimately resulted in mental overload whereas students did not retain even half of the information they studied, which only illustrates that the previous educational model was not as effective as it could have been. Nevertheless, the need to research potential methodologies for enhancing the previous learning model was in effect. In essence the previous learning curve was slightly skewed for the reason that students were gaining practical theoretical knowledge of critical course concepts however, students were unable to apply those concepts because they lacked adequate training on functioning within the corporate framework. Colleges at that time needed to increase the measure of effectiveness and efficiency of student development by setting the example for other campuses to follow. Colleges and/or universities have been widely known for providing students with extracurricular activities that would allow students to become part of a team environment and to build a foundation of principles that is geared towards embracing culture, cultural change, community service or volunteering. In an ongoing effort to improve upon established processes, colleges felt the need to parlay extracurricular activity concepts of team building inside the classroom and into external environments which is ultimately where a graduate student will spend most of his/her time in society. As time progressed colleges desired to focus more on training students on professional demeanor within an organization, organizational behavior and how to quickly adjust to cultural changes.

Values Culture "Recent trauma studies have deepened our understanding of trauma and its impact. They describe a complex range of post-trauma symptoms and identify the interactions of multiple factors as contributing to their seriousness (Briere & Spinazzola, 2005). For example, more serious symptoms are associated with histories of multiple victimizations, often beginning in childhood and resulting in disruptions of parent-child relationships (Ford & Kidd, 1998; Turner, Finkelhor & Ormrod, 2006). More profound impacts are also associated with co-occurring behavioral health problems, like substance abuse disorders, (Acierno, Resnick, Kilpatrick, Saunders, & Best, 1991) and with a range of other issues, like limited social supports, lower socioeconomic status, and stigma associated with particular traumatic events (Brier & Spinozzola, 2005). Trauma exposure occurs along a continuum of "complexity," from the less complex single, adult-onset incident (e.g., a car accident) where all else is stable in a person's life, to the repeated and intrusive trauma "frequently of an interpersonal nature, often involving a significant amount of stigma or shame" and where an individual may be more vulnerable, due to a variety of factors, to its effects (Briere & Spinazzola, 2005, p. 401). (Clawson, Salomon, and Grace, 2008).
