As colleges and universities in Texas implement procedures to comply with new state law that allows concealed weapons starting this month, Texas Woman's University in Denton has decided that the office of the Faculty Ombudsperson will be a "gun-free zone."
TWU is interpreting state and federal laws to allow the creating of gun-free zones for several types of areas. The TWU Ombuds Office falls into the category of "Locations Providing Counseling and Health Services." The current TWU Ombuds is Linda Rubin, a Professor in the Department of Psychology & Philosophy and a Licensed Psychologist. (TWU Gun-Free Policy; TWU Faculty Ombuds; Denton Record-Chronicle.)
