With six universities in the State System of Higher Education having recently changed their policies to allow students to carry firearms on campus, a Clarion University official says his school’s policy remains unchanged.
Clarion media relations director David Love told C-93 Radio that the university’s weapons policy has remained unchanged since 2001.
Clarion’s weapons policy states that there is no “legitimate purpose” to possess weapons on campus. Exceptions include pocket knives, small canisters of pepper spray and firearms carried by police officials.
Slippery Rock and Edinboro Universities are among the state schools which have recently revised weapons policies, although guns are still banned in academic buildings.
