The Bylaws of the Board of Regents at the University of Nebraska protect the rights of each member of the University community. Each individual has the right to be treated with respect and dignity, and each has the right to learn. With these rights comes the responsibility of each individual to maintain an atmosphere in which others may exercise their human rights and their right to learn. Chapter V of the Bylaws fully delineates the rights and responsibilities of students. UNMC policies are in accord with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Sections 799AS and 854 of the Public Health Services Act.
