Abstract

The goal of this thesis was to investigate out-of-class communication between faculty and students. The study addressed the role of academic entitlement on relational frame activation. Participants, N=135, read a scenario of an out-of-class communication interaction between a faculty and a student. The participants then completed measures of dominance, affiliation, involvement, academic entitlement, and demographic information. The results of the study indicated that out-of-class communication was a dominance framed form of interaction and that academic entitlement moderated frame activation.
