Danville Community College adheres to the policies of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) relative to intellectual property, copyright issues, and revenue derived from the creation of intellectual property. The VCCS policy determines ownership rights and responsibilities regarding intellectual property produced by a student and/or an employee of the VCCS. The policy is found in the VCCS Policy Manual Section 12.
The Vice President of Academic and Student Services and the Vice President of Financial and Administrative Services are the two individuals who are responsible for administering the intellectual property policies for Danville Community College. Any questions or issues arising in the academic and student support services program area are the responsibility of the Vice President of Academic and Student Services. Questions in any other area of the college (e.g., Information Technology) fall under the Vice President of Financial and Administrative Services and are addressed by that officer. Should a faculty member, staff Series 3000: Personnel Policies 36 DCC Policy Manual member or student question the decision of either one of these administrative officers, a campus committee, comprised of the two vice presidents and a faculty member selected by the Faculty Steering Committee, will hear the question concerning the administration of the intellectual property policy. Should there be an appeal beyond the three-member committee, the college President will refer the issue to the Attorney General’s office, specifically the Assistant Attorney General who advises the Virginia Community College System.
