Growing Carefree Cannabis

In the world of agriculture, cannabis and catnip are like kissing cousins. That’s the underlying theory behind DACC’s home-grown class called Cultivation and Compliance. Sustainability Instructor George Hickman has developed a course, SUST 121, that teaches students how to grow marijuana—but without actually bringing any cannabis on campus.

As Mr. Hickman says, “The course introduces key concepts and protocols associated with medicinal plant growth and distribution in Illinois.”

DACC to Offer Black History Course Free of Charge

Education is Danville Area Community College’s answer to the disease of systemic racism against African-Americans.

HIST 190 is a 15-week college course that examines the socio-economic struggles that African-Americans have experienced in trying to achieve fair and equal treatment in the United States. The historical perspective spans from the times of African slave trade through the current rise of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
