Illinois State University's Academic Senate has approved a new concealed carry policy. A task force spent most of the fall studying issues raised by the new law. ISU Spokesman Eric Jome says the instituion is mindful that some pretty nasty incidents have happened on college campuses in the U.S. involving guns.
The Academic Senate has approved a no weapons policy for all workers, students, and visitors with some narrow exceptions. Those include instruction of officially recognized programs such as ROTC and military science, on duty law enforcement officers, and storage in vehicles in some unrestricted parking areas on campus if the owner has a concealed carry permit. Guns in cars in parking lots near the laboratory schools or at tailgate events for athletic contests are specifically NOT allowed.
