Section 5.0 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska states:
Statement of Responsibility. "Students, like all members of the academic community, have the responsibility to create and support an educational environment. Each member of the community should be treated with respect and dignity. Each has the right to learn. This right imposes a duty not to infringe upon the rights of others. The academic community should assure its members those opportunities, protections and privileges that provide the best climate for learning."
