​The College is committed to providing a safe environment for all employees, students, and guests.  The College expressly prohibits any acts or threats of violence by any person in or about the College's facilities at any time.  The College will respond promptly to threats, acts of violence, and acts of aggression by employees, students, partners, or other community members. 

The College prohibits the possession of weapons or carrying of concealed weapons in facilities leased, owned or operated by the College or at any College-sponsored event or activity to the greatest extent permitted by state law.

For the purposes of this policy, "weapon" is defined as any device designed as a weapon and capable of producing death or great bodily harm, including any ligature or other instrumentality used on the throat, neck, nose, or mouth of another person to impede, partially or completely, breathing or circulation of blood, and including any electric weapon.  The definition of "weapon" includes "look alike" weapons, meaning any object which could reasonably be mistaken for a weapon as defined by this policy, regardless of whether it is manufactured for that purpose.
