Policy Statement:

A. PURPOSE

The College seeks to provide a safe campus community. Restriction against the possession, discharge, use and/or carrying of weapons is intended to foster a more secure environment and to promote the overall learning purpose for which students, employees and guests attend the College. While these restrictions offer no guarantee of protection to students, employees and guests, it is hoped the restrictions will reduce the risk of injury from any dangers which might arise from the possession, discharge, use and/or carrying of weapons.

B. POLICY

Except as allowed by Federal and State law, students, employees and guests are prohibited from possessing, using, discharging and/or carrying weapons on any campus property. Any student or employee in violation of this policy will be subject to discipline, up to, and including expulsion and/or termination as may be applicable depending on the circumstances. Any guest in violation of this policy shall be subject to ejection as a trespasser.
