The Stanford community, from students to faculty, has a symbiotic relationship with athletics. Here, sports play an essential role in sustaining a strong classroom environment. Athletics and academics are not perceived as independent entities, but rather two parts of a cooperative dynamic that fosters a commitment to excellence.
This relationship is best viewed by appreciating the first-hand accounts of those that comprise the Stanford community. Their perspectives and experiences help define that broad impact of sports on campus and emphasize the importance of athletics in creating and maintaining the Home of Champions, both on and off the field.
