St. Charles Community College is concerned about the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. SCC is committed to providing an environment where individuals are free to work, learn and teach, unencumbered and uninhibited by threats of intimidation or harm. To this end, the college has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). BIT is responsible for upholding college policies and procedures regarding student behavior.
BIT provides students with confidential, respectful, proactive support, while offering resources and balancing the educational needs of students with the mission of SCC.
A long standing tradition at St. Charles Community College is a profound respect for the dignity of all students, faculty and staff and a deep concern for the larger community as well.
Building on this tradition, BIT strongly encourages the SCC extended community to utilize its referral services to better serve our students. By doing so, BIT seeks to balance the educational needs of the student and those of the greater campus community. The success of this process hinges on community commitment to reporting concerns. If you have any further questions or need to refer a student complete the Student Concern form or call 636-922-8111.
Students must contact DSS regarding possible services. The process includes review of documentation and interviews with the student. Academic accommodations are not automatically provided because a person has a specific diagnosis. DSS determines disability status case by case. Accommodations are arranged to ensure access to programs/courses.
SCC coordinates support services which provide equal access to the college. SCC is committed to providing accessibility to its programs/activities and reasonable accommodations for persons defined as disabled under the Americans With Disabilities Act As Amended and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504. These acts protect qualified students with disabilities from discrimination. DSS advocates for an accessible academic/physical environment and works collaboratively with staff, administrators and faculty. St. Charles Community College welcomes and supports a diverse student body and is responsible for ensuring accessibility.
