A Multilevel Study of Interpersonal Influence in Academic ‘Influence Networks’
Unformatted Document Text:  Influence Networks 2 Abstract A widely held principle of social networks is the assertion that structural centrality is associated with interpersonal influence (Freeman, 1979; Friedkin, 1998; Mizruchi & Potts, 1998; Rogers, 1995). Academic networks are used to test this association, employing a multilevel model that includes communication network data and psychometric measurements of influence from one hundred fifteen faculty who represent thirteen academic departments. Although the centrality-influence link is partially supported, centrality did not predict behavioral intentions. Implications for the centrality-influence link and related multilevel theories of social influence are addressed.

Influence Networks 2
Abstract
A widely held principle of social networks is the assertion that structural centrality is
associated with interpersonal influence (Freeman, 1979; Friedkin, 1998; Mizruchi & Potts, 1998;
Rogers, 1995). Academic networks are used to test this association, employing a multilevel
model that includes communication network data and psychometric measurements of influence
from one hundred fifteen faculty who represent thirteen academic departments. Although the
centrality-influence link is partially supported, centrality did not predict behavioral intentions.
Implications for the centrality-influence link and related multilevel theories of social influence
are addressed.
Keywords: multilevel modeling, social network analysis, interpersonal influence, structural
centrality
