All of this reading about power and influence got me thinking. There is quite a bit of power/influence surrounding students, faculty, and administrators in Higher Education settings. How have you seen power and influence, particularly in classroom settings? It might help to think about French and Raven’s (1959) notions of Referent, Legitimate, Expert, Reward, or Coercive power (as described in the recent handout). It might also be interesting for you to talk about what you expected in your various classes and what you see.
