University of Arizona publishes list of individuals banned from campus, properties
PHOENIX — If you’re thinking about making a trip to The University of Arizona, you might want to make sure that you’re not banned from campus first.
For the first time, the University of Arizona has published the names and photos of people who have been temporarily banned from the campus and surrounding properties, the Arizona Daily Star reports.
Thirty-eight men and women were banned from the campus as of Tuesday, the publication found. The list included Brother Dean Saxton, who was widely known around campus for his preachings against everything from yoga pants to homosexuals.
Saxton was arrested in September 2016 for assaulting a female student and is banned from all university property until Sept. 20, 2017.
In addition to their names and photos, the list also includes the areas that they are banned from and the date they are banned until. The university did not disclose each individual’s reason for the ban.
University of Arizona Police Chief Brian Seastone said in an interview with the Daily Star that this information is essential not only for those who have been banned, but for everyone in the community.
“The purpose of posting the names and photos of the individuals is to aid the UA community in knowing who is currently excluded, and from what areas of the UA campus,” Seastone said.
These people have been banned for reasons ranging from engaging in disruptive behavior to committing crimes on the campus.
The university’s policy of temporarily banning people who have committed crimes was adopted in 2006 and could ban people from a minimum of six months to a year.
