Students Rights & Responsibilities

A community for education provides opportunity to learn. The student, in order to make best use of that opportunity, must be free to learn. The effectiveness of the opportunity depends upon each faculty member's freedom to teach. The various agencies of the College Administration attempt to provide the instruments and the conditions, which make the opportunity possible.

In order that Gettysburg College, as a community for education, may be of greatest utility in providing the opportunity to learn, both in the formal student-teacher relationship and in less formal contexts, each of its constituent groups must have certain rights and, equally important, must exercise certain responsibilities.

The purpose of the statement, which follows, is to provide guidelines for the insurance of the rights of Gettysburg College students and for the exercise of their responsibilities as members of this community for education. Other documents deal with the rights and responsibilities of other constituencies of the College.
