The policy applies to every person on any University of Oklahoma campus, including visitors, faculty, staff, volunteers, students, alumni, contractors, and service representatives. The policy includes all OU-owned, leased, rented, or maintained property including, but not limited to: buildings, facilities, sidewalks, roadways, parking lots, and grounds.
