RENDON COBIAN, Marcela Victoria. The relevance of the group in the institutional dynamics: A university diving team. Iztapalapa. Rev. cienc. soc. humanid. [online]. 2016, vol.37, n.81, pp.39-62. ISSN 2007-9176.

The aim of this paper is to highlight the importance of the group in the institutional dynamics. The group is a social generator device, a mechanism that provides psychological shelter to its members and a rational tool for the execution of the task. Theoretical discussion is illustrated by the study of the Sciences Diving Team of the Faculty of Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. This is qualitative research based on semistructured interviews and participant observation. One of the main conclusions of this paper is that the group is considered a unit characterized by the intermingling logic of various actions. These make up a complex social fabric of convergences and contradictions that encourages both social action and potential conflicts. The group is a social space that always experiences tension.
