* A bill to include “gender iden-tity” and “genetic information”is currently being considered inStudent Senate.
KU Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities, Kansas State Uni-versity Policies and Procedures Manual, University of Missouri M-Book, Te University of OklahomaStudent Rights and ResponsibilitiesCode, University of exas General Information Catalog 
You have the right to challengeyour grade, but you can’t drink alcohol on University grounds.A document made by the stu-dents, for the students specifically outlines what you can and can’t doon campus.That document is called theKU Code of Student Rights andResponsibilities, and it makes sureyour civil liberties are protectedon campus.“It makes it clear what rightsyou’re able to have on campus,”said Michael Laverty, chairman of the Student Rights Committee. “Itmakes rights a little more aboutthe students. It puts students aspriority and makes them involvedwith the process.”Laverty, a senior in political sci-ence from Manassas, Va., said theCode is a safeguard for students,who may feel their civil liber-ties were infringed upon by theUniversity or other entities. Now that Student Senate is reconven-ing, students can play an activerole in the political process by  joining the committee.“The Code represents the very best of the University,” said JaneTuttle, assistant vice provost of Student Success. “It’s based on theprinciples of fairness, honor andintegrity. It determines a forumfor violations. The University should be purposefully open, just,disciplined and caring. The Codebrings a sense of community.”
The Code was drafted by theStudent Senate and approvedby the Chancellor in 1970. Thismakes the University one of thefirst to chart out students’ rights.Even now, many universitiesdon’t have a separate documentlike the Code to protect students.As a result, the Code grants stu-dents more explicit protectionthan other universities.“There isn’t an explicit docu-ment that says that there are spe-cific rights for students,” said BillHarlan, acting coordinator of Student Activities at Kansas StateUniversity. “There’s a collectionof policies that apply specifically to students. But they’re not really centralized.”Harlan said the Office of Student Life is the main authority for students’ rights. Kansas State’sPolicies and Procedures Manuallists rights of the whole communi-ty, and that canbe extended tostudents, too.TheUniversity of Missouri has acampus-widemanual calledthe “M-book,”that lists thebasic student rights and respon-sibilities. Compared to the Code,the M-book grants most of thesame rights. But unlike Kansas, itdoesn’t explicitly grant protectionof classroom speech along withother rights.The University of Oklahomaalso has a code of student rightsand responsibilities, which wasenacted in 2011. Like Missouri,Oklahoma doesn’t protect class-room speech, but it does protectstudents from being charged twicefor a crime, something the KUCode doesn’t do.The University of Texas usesits extensive General InformationCatalog to list out rights of thewhole community. It focuses onstudents’ rights and organizesthem into an appendix of the cata-log. Unlike the other four univer-sities, Texas doesn’t say anythingabout the freedoms of studentmedia in its catalog.Kansas is the only university inthe Big 12 conference that grantsstudents’ protection from aca-demic punishment for off-campuscrime, a point debated over thepast couple of years. Also, com-pared to many of these universi-ties, Kansas allows students moresay in their on-campus rights.
The Student Rights Committeeis one of four standing commit-tees of the Student Senate, and any interested student is welcome to join and comment on legislation.According to the Senate’s rulesand regulations, the Committeereviews the Code every two years.Last year, the committee approvedchanges that allows University housing violations to be evalu-ated on an individual basis, andexpands students’ free speechrights to the Internet.“The Code shows how power-ful we actually are,” Laverty saidabout the Committee. “Right now,we’re considering a resolutionconcerning guns on campus.”The Committee didn’t see muchlegislation during the fall semester,about 20 bills, but Laverty hasa couple of main goals as chair-man for the spring. One goal is totask the Committee with a judicialcommittee.“The other standing committeeshave broad tasks,” Laverty said. “Sobringing more judicial concerns toRights would make sure it isn’tbeing underused. It would makerights more broader and increaseits credibility more.”Laverty also wants to help cleanup the Senate’s rules and regula-tions and get students to show more interest in Senate and com-mittee meetings.“I’d love to get people on thecommittee more involved,”Laverty said. “It’s just a hard task sometimes, hunting for legislation.But hopefully we get some goodissues.”
