Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct
The Media School expects all faculty, including adjuncts, to be aware of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct.
Student rights go across the areas of education, discrimination, and freedom from harassment.
These rights include:
- Rights in the Pursuit of Education
- Right to Freedom from Discrimination
- Right to Freedom from Harassment
- Right to Access Records and Facilities
- Right to Freedom of Association, Expression, Advocacy, and Publication
- Right to Contribute to University Governance
- Right to Accommodation for Individuals with Disabilities
- Rights of the Student in the Judicial Process
- Rights of Students as University Employees
The most relevant right in the area of teaching is that students have Rights in the Pursuit of Education. The classrooms, laboratories, libraries, and studios are the essential learning environments of the university, and the freedom to learn in these environments should be promoted and encouraged by instructors. Students have the right to:
Expect to interact with faculty who act professionally; provide clearly stated class goals; provide clear expectations for class performance and evaluation; meet classes as scheduled; are accessible for office hours, appointments, or consultation; and maintain a clear connection between course content and the most recently approved course description
Refer to the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct for a complete list of details.
