The objective of this study was to investigate how perceptions of instructional solidarity are developed and, in turn, how instructional solidarity impacts student values. Participants were 553 undergraduate students enrolled in an introductory communication course at a medium-sized Southeastern university. Students' self-reports of perceived teacher immediacy, teacher caring, and shared control were positively correlated with perceived instructional solidarity. Furthermore, 22% of the variance in student values was predicted from teacher immediacy, teacher caring, shared control, and instructional solidarity. Interpretations and implications for teaching and future research are addressed.
