§ 6430. General provisions. 1. The trustees or other governing board
of every college chartered by the regents or incorporated by special act
of the legislature and which maintains a campus, unless otherwise
provided, shall adopt written rules for implementing all policies
required pursuant to this article and for the maintenance of public
order on college campuses and other college property used for
educational purposes and provide a program for the enforcement thereof.
Such rules shall prohibit, among other things, any action or situation

pursuant to the penal law or any other law to which a violator or
organization may be subject.
