Education is one aspect that plays a very important role in people’s life. Through education, individuals develop their potential and competence and form a positive attitude. To achieve this goal, the scope of education includes regulations that must be obeyed by all academics, one of which is students. This study aims to measure the level of student obedience through the power styles of the lecturers from their point of view and their commitment as students. The subjects involved were students from six faculties (engineering, economics, law, psychology, education sciences, and communication studies). By applying a quantitative approach (correlation analysis and influence analysis), it is known that the commitment and power style of lecturers can positively influence the student’s obedience. In addition, discrimination test analysis on gender and faculty groups found differences in the level of obedience of women and men, as well as differences in the types of power that each faculty involved had. It is suggested that future research needs to examine the point of view of lecturers or teaching staff.
