Danville Area Community College is committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment. Sexual misconduct is a crime punishable by both civil and criminal legal action and a serious violation of the DACC Student Code of Conduct.
All students, perspective students, community members, staff and faculty must be compliant with the policies regarding sexual harassment, discrimination, misconduct, and violence. DACC students are charged with the responsibility of being familiar with and abiding by related policies and the Student Code of Conduct. Jurisdiction for these policies and procedures includes all college property/physical locations, online service and learning environments, any additional locations that house college activities/business, and any off-campus locations that become relevant due to student location. Student/staff communications, educational trainings, and supportive policies and procedures will provide the foundation to the College’s commitment to preventing sexual violence and misconduct.
These procedures comply with the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act (Act), mandated by Illinois Public Act 99-426, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act, the Jeanne Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), the Illinois Human Rights Act (775 ILCS 5/1-101), and the Illinois Public Community College Act clause (110 ILCS 805/3-29.3) in regard to Sexual Assault Awareness Education. The procedures below establish a framework to meet the safety needs of students/stakeholders and to comply with federal and State law.
