Update Your DUCC Contact Information
Stay Informed - Update Your Contact Information in the Darton Urgent & Crisis Communication System (DUCC)
Emergency situations, from natural disasters to health scares to the threats of violence, shed light on the fact that we must always be fully prepared. Accordingly, Darton State College has implemented a Blackboard notification service to enhance college-to-student and college-to-employee communication and emergency preparedness. The DUCC system is a communication service that enables key administrators and security personnel to reach all students and staff with personalized voice and text messages quickly to provide valuable information should a need arise. Darton State College leadership cares about the safety and quality of education for its students and employees. This notification tool adds to our ability to provide an environment in which students and employees can feel safe and informed. The college will have the ability to send out two specific types of notifications: Critical notices and Informative notices. The intent of a critical notice is to provide subscribers with information that may prevent loss of “life or limb”. Informative notices will be used to contact subscribers with information that Darton has deemed to be valuable for you to know.
Students are automatically opted into the system at registration and employees are opted in when hired. Everyone should log into the DUCC System to confirm that all the information was loaded correctly, to update any of the contact information or to choose not to be included in the notification system. Instructions on how to log in and to change or opt out of the system are shown below. Students needing assistance may contact Office of Registrar & Records. Employees needing assistance may contact the Human Resources department.
