The concept of collective responsibility is one that originated in early civilization, when it was realized that the ‘pooling’ of limited resources does infarct yield greater benefits for an entire community. It is this type ‘co-operative’ ideology which is at the core of the Team Initiative program.

All registered students pay a small sum of $500 in their miscellaneous fee towards this venture, and this entitles them to access all Team Initiative Services.
