Current knowledge indicates that students or employees with AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), ARC (AIDS-Related Complex), or a positive HIV antibody test normally do not pose a health risk to other students or employees in an academic setting. Therefore, students or employees who have AIDS, ARC, or a positive HIV antibody test are allowed regular classroom attendance and use of all institutional facilities. The following program to inform those at PDCCC about Acquired Immune Deﬁciency Syndrome will be followed:
- A unit on AIDS will be incorporated into student development classes (SDV), including the Facts versus Misconceptions List.
- Lists of agencies for counseling and treatment are available in the Counseling Center and the Library.
- PDCCC will develop specialized programs about AIDS prevention in the designated week in March.
- The College will conduct a biennial review of its policy on AIDS to (a) determine its effectiveness and implement changes if they are needed and (b) ensure that non-discrimination policy is consistently enforced.
- College personnel will continue to work with area agencies to share information to keep the PDCCC community informed.
