DACC Catalog 2013-2014
Catalog - Message from the President
Dr. Alice Marie Jacobs
Welcome to Danville Area Community College. Whether you have decided on a program or are still considering the options, you will find that the College offers an award-winning faculty and staff concerned with promoting students' academic development and success. Statistics show that most DACC transfer students do as well as, or better than, students who begin at a university, and that career graduates find success in their field.
The faculty and staff at DACC put student service and satisfaction first. From the Student Success Center to the DACC Foundation, student success is the priority. Tutors are available in most subjects; students with documented disabilities may arrange for support services; scholarship disbursements of more than $250,000 annually; and a student emergency fund exists for unexpected, qualified expenses.
Our unique campus provides students with the most current technology housed in beautifully restored, historic buildings on more than 75 lush acres. Class sizes averaging 13 students per faculty member offer a level of personalized instruction which cannot be found at larger institutions. Reasonable tuition rates insure an affordable education for all members of the community. An open admission policy promises that anyone can walk through these doors and receive a quality education tailored to fit his/her ability and goals.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff, I welcome you to explore your endless possibilities at Danville Area Community College.
Alice Marie Jacobs
