"Campus Carry" Legislation

To:   CSU faculty, staff and students

From:   President Chris Markwood

Yesterday evening, Governor Deal signed House Bill 280, the “campus carry” legislation.

The chancellor and I -- and many other university presidents -- are on record as saying that we supported current law. Nonetheless, as we near the July 1st effective date of this new law, the system office will be issuing implementation guidance to all institutions, including Columbus State University. We will not be making any changes to policies until we receive this final guidance.

We recognize that many have strong feelings about this new law. It is important that we all work together now to implement the new law appropriately, and continue to provide a top-quality education to our students.
