American Council on Education’s 95th Annual Meeting

Date: March 02, 2013
Location: Washington DC

Partner Steven Healy to present at the American Council on Education's (ACE) 95th Annual Meeting, Leading Change.  The meeting will be held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.  

Session: Under Siege: Guns on Campus

In the wake of the recent events in Connecticut, renewed focus has been placed on promoting legislation aimed at reducing gun violence.  In addition, 18 states, supported by a well-organized national campaign, introduced legislation in 2011 to override institutional policies regarding guns on campus. Sixteen states followed suit in 2012. Colorado, Mississippi, Oregon, Utah, and Wisconsin have adopted laws requiring public colleges and universities to allow the carrying of concealed weapons on campus. This session will explore myriad questions associated with this topic, ranging from how to best ensure the safety of students and faculty on campuses already operating under concealed carry laws, to ways in which campuses and their national associations can be more effective partners in both stemming the tide of unwanted legislation and promoting legislation upon which campus leaders agree.
