Seeking Volunteers: Sexual Misconduct Grievance Process

Seeking Advisors and Board Members for the Sexual Misconduct Grievance Process

We are seeking volunteers to serve as College Trained Advisors and/or Board Members for cases of sexual misconduct. Both Advisors and Board Members play a critical role in protecting student rights and enacting due process measures.

College Trained Advisors are part of a pool of college employees made available, through the Title IX Office, to complainants and respondents as they go through the investigative and student conduct processes. Advisors are an invaluable supportive measure for participants of the sexual misconduct process, as they offer support, knowledge, and a helping hand throughout the process.

Board Members will be called upon for Conduct Review Boards to review all evidence collected during an investigation and presented by Complainants and Respondents during the hearing. This board will present a finding based on the preponderance of evidence. Conduct Review Board members are an essential part of the decision-making process and ensure a fair and equitable experience for all involved parties throughout the duration of the hearing.

There will be a comprehensive training offered virtually. The online training will be completed, independently, by September 20th to be followed by a Skill Building Workshop (9/22/21), and Mock Conduct Review Board (9/23/21), with staff from Title IX, Student Conduct and Community Standards, Legal Affairs, and the Tompkins County Advocacy Center.

Please contact Omar Stoute at ostoute1@ithaca.edu by September 20th, if you are interested in serving as an advisor for the upcoming year or have questions about the position or training.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Omar Stoute at ostoute1@ithaca.edu or 6072745136. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

ePortfolio Approval Procedures for December 2021 and May 2022 Graduates

CCR has agreed to extend the simplified ICC eportfolio approval procedures begun in Spring 2020 for December 2021 and May 2022 graduates.

Existing ICC policy states that students must complete the ICC ePortfolio. “Complete” has been understood to mean that students have uploaded at least one artifact in each area within the DRF in Taskstream, and that they have entered some relevant text in the form for each area. For the purposes of students completing their degree requirements in December 2021 and May 2022, reviews for completeness will focus on the following elements only:

  1. CLA
  2. Capstone reflection

For those students who have already completed the other sections of the eportfolio, please emphasize that faculty and ICC staff who read the portfolios will continue to read this. We appreciate the work students put in, and we enjoy the opportunity to get a glimpse into the kinds of connections they are making among their learning experiences. We will not, however, return eportfolios for revision if students are missing an artifact for any area other than the CLA or Capstone.

Guidelines for students and faculty will be sent out in a few weeks.
