Campus Carry

New legislation was passed in the 84th Texas Legislative session that will allow individuals with a concealed handgun license (CHL) to carry a concealed handgun on public university campuses in Texas beginning August 1, 2016.
This legislation was passed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on June 1, 2015, and is often referred to as “Campus Carry.” The law requires each university president to develop policies and guidelines for their institutions. In developing these policies and guidelines, university presidents may consult with students, staff, and faculty and may consider the nature of the student population, specific safety concerns, and the uniqueness of the campus environment.

The following events have passed but have been retained for historical purposes:

The Alpine Campus Carry Taskforce will host a public listening session on November 19th at 11:30 am – 1:00 pm in the Espino Conference Center. The listening session will allow for Sul Ross community members to discuss concerns and will assist the taskforce in gathering information for recommendations about possible “gun-free zones” to President Kibler.

The Rio Grande College Campus Carry Taskforce will host a listening session in the near future. Please check back for an updated time and location. The listening session will allow for RGC campus community members to share their thoughts and opinions about potential “gun-free zones” to President Kibler.
