K-State faculty members leaving because of campus carry

The possibility of guns on K-State’s campus has encouraged several faculty members to retire or find work elsewhere.

David Rintoul, a former associate professor for K-State’s division of biology, retired after the spring semester specifically to avoid working on a campus that allows concealed carry, he said.

On July 1, a law exempting Kansas public universities from the state’s concealed carry law expires, and students and visitors may begin carrying on campus.

Rintoul, who is 66 and retired this spring, is one of at least four faculty members who say they are leaving the university because of the law. He worked at K-State for 37 years. It’s the only institution he’s worked for since receiving his doctorate.

1. I have a friend who did the same at UT Austin.

Most faculty will not meet with a student without an open door. Add the gun piece and emotionally immature and or disgruntled students and you have a recipe for a tragedy.
