Cedarville University will now allow licensed faculty, staff and trustees to carry concealed handguns on campus.

Cedarville University’s concealed carry policy takes effect today

Cedarville University’s new policy on carrying concealed handguns on campus takes effect today.

Cedarville faculty, staff and trustees with concealed carry licenses can now carry concealed handguns on campus, but there’s a few things they need to do before taking advantage of the new policy.

Cedarville became the first college in Ohio to allow some form of concealed carry. The university announced in May that its board of trustees had decided to approve the concealed carry policy.

The decision came as Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law in December, allowing individual boards of trustees to decided whether concealed carry would be allowed on their campuses.
