The University of Utah will take another look at a proposed campus skateboard ban, officials said Thursday.
The proposal to ban all recreational nonmotorized riding devices on campus including bikes won't come before the university's Board of Trustees later this month, said U. spokesman Keith Sterling. Instead, an executive committee for the school's Academic Senate will review it again on June 17. That meeting is closed to the public.
"I think the drafters of the policy wanted to respect the opinion of the full senate because it was such a closely divided vote," said Academic Senate president-elect Allyson Mower. The senate narrowly approved the proposal Monday after a tie-breaking vote from the senate president, with plans to review it again in the fall.
