Student Rights and Responsibilities

Members of the Baylor University Student Body are guaranteed rights under the Baylor University Student Body Constitution. These protections are provided in Article VI, Section I, and are as follows:

A. Students shall have the right to contact their student representatives to voice concerns over matters they find relevant.
B. Students shall have the right to appeal a decision of an organization’s judicial process against them to the Baylor Student Court.
C. Students shall have the right to not be hazed, as defined by the Baylor University Administration.
D. Students shall have the right to express personal opinions, publicly and privately, which do not conflict with standards of conduct established by the Baylor University Administration.
E. Students shall make clear that they speak only for themselves in their public expressions or demonstrations.

It is prohibited for student representatives within the Baylor University Student Government to deny a student’s ability to contact them about their concerns. Please contact the Office of the Attorney General as soon as possible if such an issue arises.

Additionally, some previous Baylor University Student Court decisions have cited the Student Rights and Responsibilities. Please refer to the Student Court’s Previous Opinions page for more information.
