Weapons on Campus
As of July 1, 2014, Section 18-3309 of the Idaho Code allows individuals with enhanced concealed carry permits to carry weapons on public college and universities.. The College of Western Idaho (CWI) has worked diligently to evaluate what changes need to be implemented on campus in response to the legislation. Our principal goal is to make sure our campus community remains a safe learning and working environment.
