If You Notice Someone Carrying a Weapon

The likelihood of seeing someone on campus conceal carrying is increasing due to the number of individuals who have chosen to participate in our Conceal Carry Policy.

If you see someone carrying and they are not concealing, you are encouraged to call the University Police, give a description of the individual, and location. You may remain anonymous.

A police officer will be dispatched to locate and contact the person to confirm that they are lawfully carrying the weapon.
