KU weapons policy
In 2013, the Kansas Legislature passed legislation allowing lawful gun owners to carry concealed handguns on all Kansas university campuses and in campus buildings, beginning July 1, 2017. In order to be in compliance with state law, the Kansas Board of Regents approved its new weapons policy on January 20, 2016. This policy applies to all Regents institutions, but allows each university to determine some specific ways to implement the policy on their campuses. The Regents asked KU and the other institutions to submit their policies by October 2016.
After eight months of work – headed by our university-wide Weapons Policy Advisory Committee and two campus implementation committees – KU submitted its draft weapons policy to the Regents on October 10. The Regents governance committee approved our policy at the November board meeting. The policy was approved by the full board December 14, 2016.
