CEDARVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- A small school east of Dayton could become the first college in the state to allow concealed weapons on campus.
The proposal at Cedarville University, a private Christian university with about 3300 students, would allow faculty and staff with permits to carry concealed weapons.
The Dayton Daily News reports university trustees will announce a decision this coming week.
A new Ohio law allows individual boards of trustees to decide whether to allow concealed weapons on campus.
Cedarville closely studied the policy at Liberty University in Virginia, a much bigger institution which allows faculty, staff and students to carry concealed weapons.
Cedarville surveyed its own students, staff and faculty before drafting the proposal.
