No guns on UW-Madison campus, Dean of Students says

This rare piece of good news comes in email from UW-Madison Dean of Students Lori Berquam:

UW-Madison has never allowed weapons on campus. However, as a result of a recent change in state law, beginning in November, officially permitted concealed carry of weapons will be allowed throughout the state, including on campus grounds.

The law provides that the university may continue to ban firearms and other weapons in its buildings and at campus events. The university is in the process of creating signage to clearly inform everyone that firearms and weapons are not allowed in any campus buildings or at such events. We will provide more information on this important topic early in the semester.

Here's hoping that's true on all UW campuses, not just Madison.
