munity can often satisfy these needs effectively by them-
selves. However, in many cases, these needs can be met
more efficiently through the actions of a collective body
such as the association. In such cases, the association has
an obligation to provide the necessary services to the de-
gree permitted by its resources.

The association has historically provided lUP with a cam-
pus store, a campus union with meeting rooms, food serv-

ices, game rooms and other amenities, and outdoor
recreational facilities. It expects to continue these services
and to add others or refine the present ones as the needs
and desires of its members change. The association, in
cooperation with I UP, develops and provides support pro-
grams which enhance the extracurricular life of lUP.

In addition to providing services directly, the association
serves as a vehicle for funding and promoting the pro-
grams of other campus organizations that benefit the com-
munity as a whole. Staff support for these programs will
normally be provided by the university or the groups in-
volved, except in the case of programs that are primarily
operated at association-owned or operated facilities.

The association will continue to pursue cooperative rela-
tionships with other Indiana agencies, primarily recrea-
tional in nature, with the aim of improving opportunities
for its members, the students.

The association provides an opportunity for the educa-
tional experience of becoming involved in the governance
of the corporation. This is a significant role which helps
students prepare for leadership positions in society.

The association will continue to consider the development
of new services and programs and reevaluate those it cur-
rently supports. It recognizes that as a fiduciary of student
funds, it must channel its resources in a way that provides
maximum benefits for the university as a whole.

Student Rights, Freedoms,
and Responsibilities

General Statement on Student
Rights, Freedoms, and

The university commits itself to guaranteeing its students
the rights discussed in the following paragraphs, insofar as
1) they do not contradict either state or federal statutes, all
of which are binding upon lUP as a state-owned and oper-
ated institution, and 2) they are not incompatible with the
instructor's freedom to teach.

A. Freedom of Access to Higher Education

lUP welcomes students from all racial, religious, and
socioeconomic backgrounds. All facilities and services
at lUP are extended equally to all enrolled students. In
addition, the university seeks to guarantee all its stu-
dents equal access to public facilities within the com-
munity. The university will not condone racial or
religious discrimination directed at its students.

B. Freedom of Expression

The faculty has an obligation to encourage free inquiry
and expression, and students should be permitted ra-
tional and orderly disagreement with data and views
expressed in or out of the classroom. The student,
however, has an equal obligation to be responsible for
learning the content of any course of study for which
he or she is enrolled. The university should provide
reliable mechanisms to protect the student against
prejudiced or capricious evaluation of academic work,
the latter functioning as the sole basis on which the
student is graded, unless the plan of course of study
explicitly states otherwise.

C. Freedom of Assembly - Demonslralion Policy

Demonstrations may be held anywhere on the campus,
so long as they do not disrupt the normal operation of
the university or infringe on the rights of other mem-
bers of the university community, except that no dem-
onstrations are permitted inside university buildings.
Any use of sound amplification equipment on the
campus must have prior clearance through the Sched-
uling Office.

In order that demonstrators not interfere with the op-
eration of the university or the rights of others, they
shall not

1. Obstruct vehicular, bicycle, pedestrian or other
