5-308 Student Code of Conduct
A. Jurisdiction and Authority
3. Actions under the Student Code of Conduct are administrative and not criminal in nature.
Therefore, a student
can be found responsible under the Student Code of Conduct even if the underlying conduct would not also constitute a criminal offense, and even if a prosecutor has determined not to prosecute as a criminal matter or the student has been found not guilty in a criminal proceeding.
F. Prohibited Conduct
24.. Use, possession, display, or storage of any weapon, dangerous instrument, explosive material or device, fireworks, bomb-making*materials or dangerous chemical on university property, at a university sponsored activity or in violation of law or university policy, is not permitted unless one of the following exceptions apply:
a. Subject to A.R.S. §12-781 and other applicable law, a person may lawfully transport or lawfully store a firearm that is both 1) in the person's locked and privately owned motor vehicle or in a locked compartment on the person's privately owned motorcycle, and 2) not visible from the outside of the motor vehicle or motorcycle, although the board or a university may require that vehicles transporting or storing firearms be parked in alternative parking as described in A.R.S. §12-781, or
b. Use, possession, display or storage is specifically authorized by an Arizona or federal statute governing law enforcement officers or in writing by university officials with the authority to grant such permission, or
c. Universities may permit students to possess certain potentially dangerous instruments, and limited quantities of chemicals or other dangerous materials if they are used for academic and other legitimate purposes, if the presence of these items does not present an undue risk to the campus or community, and if the proposed use, possession, display or storage of these items has been expressly approved in writing by an authorized university representative.
