Campus Town Hall on concealed carry

As many of you are aware, the CU-Boulder campus is now covered by the Concealed Carry Act (CCA). While we have attempted to provide guidance on how the campus will comply with the CCA, there continue to be questions from faculty and staff alike on this important issue. Please join us in the UMC Aspen Rooms on Tuesday, Sept, 4, from 12 - 1 p.m. for a campus town hall. Members of the CU-Boulder administration, including Chancellor DiStefano, Provost Moore, Managing Senior Associate Counsel John Sleeman, and Commander Robert Axmacher from the CU Police Department will be present.
