Student and Teacher Rights and Responsibilities

Even if you are well-versed in your rights and responsibilities as a member of society, there are certain rights and responsibilities that are unique to college life. For instance, a growing body of law addresses the concerns of hazing by fraternities, sports teams, and other college groups and organizations. Meanwhile, Title IX of the Civil Rights Act guarantees equal access to academic resources (including athletics) by male and female students. This section covers the various rights and responsibilities of teachers and students, with articles on affirmative action, tenure and free speech, the ability to challenge one's grades, sexual assault, underage drinking, and more.
