As of November 1, 2011, Wisconsin’s concealed carry law goes into effect. Beginning November 1st any Wisconsin resident 21 or older, who successfully passes a firearms training course, and passes a background check, may apply for a concealed carry permit, and with that permit carry a concealed weapon in Wisconsin.
Addressing the question of whether MIAD will allow concealed weapons on campus THE ANSWER IS NO.
MIAD has an absolute prohibition against firearms or any other dangerous weapon on campus.
No one, including a CCW licensee, may carry a firearm or dangerous weapon in or on the MIAD campus!
As stated in the Student Handbook, possession of a dangerous weapon on campus is a suspend-able offense.
Further, it is a class I felony for a person to knowingly possess a firearm (concealed or otherwise) on the grounds of a school in the State of Wisconsin.
Anyone violating the law or MIAD’s policy regarding weapons on campus will be prosecuted to the full extent of both Wisconsin state law and the MIAD Student Code of Conduct.
If you have any questions about MIAD’s weapons prohibition, contact Keith Kotowicz, the Director of Campus Security immediately.
