Possession of Weapons

To reduce the risk of injury to employees and students, the university prohibits the possession of weapons on campus premises, in university vehicles, at any university-sponsored events off-campus. Prohibited weapons include firearms, knives, or other dangerous devices including, but not limited to: guns, firecrackers or other explosives, hunting weapons, live ammunition, flares, swords, slingshots, pellet guns, paint guns, and bb guns.

Employees should check with their supervisors or with Human Resources if they have a question regarding this policy. Employees should report to their supervisors any concerns about other staff members, or students in possession of prohibited weapons.

Failure to adhere to the university’s weapon policy or failure to cooperate in an investigation is grounds for disciplinary action, which, depending on the circumstances, may include immediate termination.
