Rights and Responsibilities

The General College Community

Academic institutions exist for the transmission of knowledge, the quest for truth, the development of students, and the general well-being of society. In the pursuit of these ends, all members of the college community have such basic rights as freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of peaceful assembly and association, freedom of personal beliefs, and freedom from personal force and violence, threats of violence and personal abuse. The exercise of such rights is subject to the college’s obligation to maintain an atmosphere consistent with the purposes of academic freedom, social responsibility, and civil order.
