Drexel Rights, Your School’s Rights

Last term, I took a class on civil rights.  We had to do a final project by choosing one issue and presenting it to the class in some kind of interactive form.  One group did a Wikipage on student rights at Drexel.

This site is simple to make and easy to read.  Any Drexel student would find it helpful to know what they can or cannot do on campus.  The Wiki references thefire.org, which declares,

The mission of FIRE is to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of consciencethe essential qualities of individual liberty and dignity. FIRE’s core mission is to protect the unprotected and to educate the public and communities of concerned Americans about the threats to these rights on our campuses and about the means to preserve them.

I feel as if every college or universery should create a Wiki page on diciphering the student handbooks, the rules, the regulations — all in a simple context that every student can understand.

Check out the Wiki of Drexel Rights.

My favorite part of the Wiki is the flow chart of judial affairs.  How are students supposed to figure that out?
