Public Safety to hold campus carry forums

People who have questions about the new campus carry law, also known as House Bill 280, will have a chance to get the information they need during four public forums in July.

Organized by the Division of Public Safety, Office of Legal Affairs and Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs, the forums will address topics such as what the law allows, what its limitations are, and what the community should expect.

The forums will also cover site survey information to determine which areas of the university fall under the new law. Attendees will then have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session.

The four sessions are scheduled as follows:

  • 9 to 10 a.m. July 14 on the Health Sciences Campus, BC 1030 – Auditoria Center
  • 2 to 3 p.m. July 17 on the Summerville Campus, WH – Washington Hall Towers
  • 9 to 10 a.m. July 27 on the Summerville Campus, WH – Washington Hall Towers
  • 2 to 3 p.m. July 28 on the Health Sciences Campus, BC 1030 – Auditoria Center

Students, faculty, staff, and the community at large are invited to attend any of the sessions. No registration is required. Seating is limited, however, but more sessions will be scheduled in future months depending on demand.
