Com que sembla que cal actualitzar el Reglament de Disciplina de la UAB, aquí em permeto anotar algunes normes del Reglament dels Estudiants de la University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. És significatiu que es parli de drets I DEURES dels estudiants, perquè molta gent acostuma a deixar-se la segona part de la coordinació. Em permeto subratllar les parts més ‘repressores’ (suposo que el reglament el devia escriure Franco i el van traduir a l’anglès (ironia!)):
Article 1—Student Rights and Responsibilities
Part 1. Student Rights
§1-103 Campus Expression
(a) Discussion and expression of all views is permitted within the University subject only to requirements for the maintenance of order. Support of any cause by orderly means that are not in violation of law and that do not disrupt the operation of the University nor interfere with the rights of others is permitted.
(b) Members and organizations in the University community may invite and hear any persons of their own choosing, subject only to reasonable requirements on time, place, and manner for use of University facilities.
(c) The campus press and media are to be free of censorship. The editors and managers shall not be arbitrarily suspended because of student, faculty, administration, alumni, or community disapproval of editorial policy or content.
(d) The right of peaceful protest is recognized within the University community. The University retains the right to assure the safety of individuals, the protection of property, and the continuity of the educational process.
(e) Lawful picketing and other forms of peaceful protest are permitted on University premises except that lawful picketing is permitted only out-of-doors.
Students enrolling in the University assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the University’s function as an educational institution and suitable to members of the academic community. Conduct for which students are subject to discipline includes, but is not limited to, the following:
(a) Conduct that threatens the health or safety of any person, or creates a reasonable fear that such a result will occur, including but not limited to:
(1) actions causing bodily harm
(2) physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature
(3) harassment, or behavior which is so persistent, pervasive, or severe as to deny a person’s ability to participate in the University community.
(4) reckless disregard for the health or safety of any person
(b) Sexual misconduct: […]
(c) Stalking, defined as knowingly following a person or placing a person under surveillance on two or more occasions.
(d) Hazing, defined as an act that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of any person, or that defaces, destroys, or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation into, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in, a group or organization.
(e) The use of force or violence, actual or threatened, to willfully deny, impede, obstruct, impair, or interfere with any of the following:
(1) the freedom of movement of any person, including entering or leaving property or facilities
(2) the performance of institutional duties by a member of the University or
(3) by knowingly occupying or remaining in or at any property or facility owned or controlled by the University after receiving due notice to depart.
(f) Any conduct that substantially threatens or interferes with the maintenance of appropriate order and discipline in the operation of the University. Without excluding other situations, examples include shouting, noise making, obstruction, and other disruptive actions designed or intended to interfere with or prevent meetings, assemblies, classes, or other scheduled or routine University operations or activities.
(i) Participation in a disruptive or coercive demonstration. A demonstration is disruptive or coercive if it substantially impedes University operations, substantially interferes with the rights of others, or takes place on premises or at times where students are not authorized to be. There is no requirement that University authorities order students to cease participation in a disruptive or coercive demonstration.
(j) Theft, unauthorized use, or unauthorized possession of property or services of another; or knowing possession of stolen property.
(k) Intentional or reckless destruction or damage of University, public, or personal property of another.
(m) Unauthorized entry to or use of University, public, or private premises.
