Firearms, Explosives, and Weapons

The possession and/or use of dangerous weapons is prohibited on CSI property or at CSI sponsored events by students, faculty, staff and visitors except for those persons authorized by state law or campus administration to carry concealed weapons and ammunition in authorized areas of the campus. It is strongly discouraged, however, for anyone to bring a firearm onto the CSI campus or to events even if permitted by law to do so. A complete description of the revised CSI Weapons Policy, with Questions & Answers, may be viewed on the CSI Security webpage at Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action up to and including: expulsion for student offenses, termination for employee offenses and a trespass from the CSI campus for offenses committed by community members. Criminal violations will be referred to local law enforcement. Students or visitors arriving on campus with firearms in their possession may check them in at Campus Security and may retrieve them when leaving. Any exception to this policy must be approved by Campus Security. Possession and use of explosives (fireworks) on college premises is strictly prohibited. Occupants of off-campus housing are subject to city, county and state laws and ordinances governing the use of firearms and fireworks.
