The Office of Judicial Affairs is currently seeking staff and faculty justices for the 2009-2010 academic year.
The position calls for members of the Ithaca College staff and faculty to serve as justices for Ithaca College Conduct Review Board and Conduct Appeal Board hearings. These conduct boards are charged with the responsibility of protecting and enforcing the rules and regulations set down in the Ithaca College Student Conduct Code's "Statement of Responsibilities."
The Conduct Review Board and Appeal Board hear cases of alleged academic and nonacademic misconduct by Ithaca College students. The board will determine if a student should be found responsible for the charge(s) he/she allegedly violated and, if found responsible, impose judicial sanctions that range from written warning to expulsion from the College.
Some of the personal qualities expected for all student, staff, and faculty justices include:
A. Strong interpersonal skills (listening skills, communication skills, assertiveness, etc.)
One year of service at Ithaca College is recommended to ensure that the staff or faculty member has a working knowledge of the College's systems and organization, but this is not a requirement. Staff and faculty justices can expect to be asked to serve on a hearing probably no more than twice during a given semester. When a board hearing does take place, a staff or faculty justice should be prepared for a process that could require a very lengthy day and/or evening commitment (such as one to three hours).
If you are interested in becoming a staff or faculty justice, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, 2009.
In addition, we are seeking faculty and staff members to volunteer for an adviser position for students involved in cases of an alleged sexual assault. Advisers will be part of a pool available to alleged survivors and alleged perpetrators as they go through the Conduct Review Board process. The advisers will be able to offer support and direction for a student throughout the process, including attendance at the Conduct Review Board hearing.
There will be a special training session in September for those interested in becoming sexual assault advisers; the date and time will be determined based on the availability of Heather Campbell and Patty Tvaroha from the Advocacy Center. Please contact Mike Leary, assistant director of judicial affairs, at 274-3375 or email@example.com by Friday, September 4, if you are interested in being an adviser for the upcoming academic year or have questions about the position.
