Carroll Community College Creates New Integrity
and Judicial Affairs Advocate Position
Joel Hoskowitz has been appointed by the college president as Integrity and Judicial Affairs Advocate at Carroll Community College. In this new position, Hoskowitz reports to the dean of Student Affairs. Hoskowitz provides leadership and stewardship of the college's Code of Integrity, Student Rights and Responsibilities Code, and Student Judicial System.
He also serves as chair of the new Student Care and Behavioral Intervention Committee. This committee is comprised of the vice president of Academic and Student Affairs and college deans. It has representation from disability support, admissions, counseling, risk management, and security. "At Carroll, student care and safety is our first priority," said Dr. James Ball, vice president of Academic and Student Affairs. "In the aftermath of the tragedies at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University, campuses across the nation are strengthening their student care/intervention and judicial affairs processes. Mr. Hoskowitz is a very competent individual who has demonstrated an exceptional ability to oversee our Integrity and Judicial Affairs processes. "
The primary role of the committee is to create a system through which faculty and staff members may provide alerts of student behavior that may signal a concern. The committee is also charged with determining whether it is necessary to intervene and/or provide support and assistance to the student.
Hoskowitz has worked at the campus for the past 30 years. He has a bachelor's degree in psychology from Duquesne University and a master's degree in education from Duquesne University.
Hoskowitz is a resident of Hampstead, Md.
