1- TEC is committed to providing the new generation with an overbroadening environment and material for generation building that not only supports the growth and development of the body, mind and soul but also emphasizes the need of building faith and belief ...
Question: Should the verbs "SUPPORT" and "EMPHASIZE" be singular or plural? A very confusing sentence. ‘Overbroadening’? ‘Generation building’? Are these 2 ‘things’ the subject of ‘supports’ & ‘emphasizes’?

2- In order to achieve the task, the management and faculty is continuously striving with ceaseless zeal and enthusiasm.
Question: Should the verb BE in this sentence be singular or plural? Do you consider 'management' and 'faculty' one & the same thing? Since the definite article ‘the’ is used only before ‘management’, I presume you may take it as referring to the same thing and hence ‘is’ is appropriate.
3- We the students leave the school, they will be laced with Pakistani identity and proud of their heritage.
Question: Can we ever connect two things of different kind with "AND"? The use of ‘and’ here is fine. The ‘and’ joins together 2 simple sentences to form the compound sentence thus.
