Policy Regarding Firearms

Firearms Policy

On July 1, 2010, the State of Indiana introduced a new law concerning firearms and employer policies. Employers are prevented from adopting any policies which would prohibit employees from bringing firearms onto an employer’s property so long as the firearm is kept out of plain sight in a locked vehicle.

The Law, However, Contains Several Exemptions

including but not limited to:

“Property belonging to an approved postsecondary education institution.”
(As defined by IC 21-7-13-6(b))

DePauw University, under the Indiana State Law, is an approved postsecondary educational institution, therefore firearms are not permitted on DePauw University property per Indiana State Law and DePauw University Policy.
