It is the policy of Danville Area Community College to provide an accessible campus, both in terms of the physical plant and programs. The College will comply with all requirements set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Illinois Accessibility Code of 1988, and all regulations implementing these Acts.
Disability Services provides assistance to all qualified students with disabilities, whether they are physical, psychiatric, or educational. Please note, under the ADA and Section 504, a person is an individual with a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one of more major life activities. In order for academic accommodations to be received, students are required to register through the Testing Center or Disability Services office and attend an interview to document the disability and identify their needs. All services are based on individual needs. Examples of available services include adaptive equipment, audio textbooks, interpreters, notetakers, readers, special testing accommodations, and TTY locations.
Overall, an inclusive campus climate is promoted by fostering an understanding of the effects of disabilities and by working to eliminate the physical, technical, and attitudinal barriers that limit the range of opportunities for students with disabilities. Four offices on the DACC campus work together to address accessibility issues:
