Texas Dean Cites Campus Carry in Decision to Leave

February 26, 2016

Fritz Steiner is leaving his job as architecture dean at the University of Texas at Austin and is citing the new campus carry law -- which will allow guns in classrooms, among other campus spaces -- as a key reason, The Texas Tribune reported. Steiner will become dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design on July 1. He said he has turned down such offers in the past. "I would have never applied for another job if not for campus carry," he said. "I felt that I was going to be responsible for managing a law I didn't believe in."
