Report Bias or Hate

How to report an incident of Bias or Hate at DACC and actions taken following the report.

Bias or Hate should Not be a part of your DACC Experience

Danville Area Community College commits to building a safe, supportive, and healthy environment for everyone. We value a diverse and inclusive environment where everyone can enjoy and take part in a safe educational experience. So keeping our learning environments and campus safe and free from intimidation, hate, harassment, and violence is crucial.

Incidents of hate or bias affect a person or group adversely, and it undermines social and educational experiences at DACC. We take incidents of bias and hate seriously and will work hard to respond justly to report experienced incidents of bias or hate.

  • Slurs
  • Degrading language
  • Epithets

  • Vandalism
  • Intimidation
  • Symbols
  • Assault
  • Harassment

Reporting a Bias or Hate Incident

The office of diversity created this reporting system to offer support and resources for involved parties of bias or hate incidents affecting the DACC community.

This reporting system allows the College to know and respond to experiences that impact DACC students, faculty, and staff. We will use such reports to inform the community about these events. And we hope to create an awareness of intolerance relating to bias or hate incidents.

The Reporting Process

  1. Someone reports a bias or hate incident using this form.
  2. After submission, a staff member acknowledges receipt of the report. This staff member offers to meet with the reporter to talk about the next steps and connects the reporter to the proper resources. A reporter can remain anonymous. Yet this makes it more difficult for the College to respond and resolve incidents. We value confidentiality, and we only share necessary or emergency information with contacts.
  3. Responses to reports of bias or hate will differ depending on the severity of the incident. Such responses can differ from referrals to proper offices and resources to conversations between the targeted individual or group and the respondent/s.
  4. When the student code of conduct is violated, the Student Conduct Officer may address the incident through an informal Disciplinary Meeting or a formal Student Conduct Committee.
  5. A log of the incident of bias or hate is recorded and reported to the State.
