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. College of Western Idaho (CWI) has worked diligently to evaluate procedures and implement changes on campus in response to this legislation to ensure our campus community remains a safe learning and working environment.
