University of Kansas Chancellor Opposes Guns on Campus

The University of Kansas’ chancellor and 70 of the school’s distinguished professors have formally spoken out against the concealed carry of guns on campus.

The Lawrence Journal World reports Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little addressed the issue in her chancellor’s message to faculty and staff on Monday. The professors, including outgoing Provost Jeff Vitter, issued a statement voicing their opposition on Friday. The professors said universities should be able to restrict firearms on their campuses.

Under state law, Kansas universities must allow concealed weapons on campus beginning July 1, 2017.

The Kansas Board of Regents has drafted a policy to implement the new law on campuses.

Gray-Little encouraged employees to attend an information session on weapons on campus Tuesday and to respond to a weapons survey emailed to faculty and staff last week.
