As of August 1, handgun license holders in Texas can carry handguns on college campuses. Senate Bill 11, passed by the Texas Legislature in 2015, gives university presidents the authority to establish rules governing the campus carry, but lawmakers have been clear that the intent of the law must be upheld. Many faculty, students and parents fear the consequences of guns on campus while others feel the law enables them to defend themselves in the event of a school shooting.

Join us for a discussion on how schools are addressing safety issues, alleviating fears and implementing the new law.
