The problem this research study aims to address is the development of architectural values in graduate architecture students and faculty. This study explores the relationship between academic values (architectural concepts) and practical skillsets (architectural competencies) within architectural education. It also investigates the relationship between student and faculty value priorities in regards to the profession. Conducted at the University of Virginia, School of Architecture, the study utilized the administration of the researcher-made Architectural Values Inventory (AVI), based on Rokeach's (1973) Value Survey. The principal component analysis, used to evaluate reliability and validity proved, the AVI to be both valid and reliable surfacing six significant components. The canonical correlation analysis showed a significant relationship between architectural concepts and competencies. The Goodman-Kruskal gamma rendered a relationship between students and faculty on only five of the 32 architectural values, subsequently showing little to no correlation between students and faculty on the whole. These research findings have the potential to influence areas of architectural education such as accreditation, curriculum development, professional development, and professional practice.
