Compliance Related Activities

Campus Carry Policy / Procedure – Tim Michalski – in August 2015 a bill was passed allowing students to carry on campus with the concealed handgun license effective August 1, 2016. In December, the campus carry committee presented a draft proposal to Dr. Morgan, Interim President for review. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued an opinion regarding the Campus Carry bill which confirms our belief that exempting dorms exceeds the authority of the law but you can restrict areas such as biohazard labs or areas with children. At UHV about 3% of students are 21 or over, there are risks we will need to address. Open carry is also another law approved that is not approved for the campus yet. After Dr. Morgan approves the draft, then sent to legal and the Board of Regents then subject to legislative committee.
