Carmen Barnhardt – Title IX Coordinator
Marshall B. Ketchum University

As a new VP working at a small institution I appreciate my membership in ICS. Courtney is always quick with a reply to simple questions and offers a consultation call for the questions that aren’t so quick and easy. Her advice is practical and applicable to our institution’s size and scope. She has helped me develop a training plan for onboarding new Title IX coordinators who are new to the work, creatively replacing our Code of Conduct policy and procedures that allow for input from our Deans and a number of other, “oh shoot, we need a policy on that?” type questions.

Courtney provides invaluable assistance with Title IX compliance, including real-time legal advice during complex investigations. Courtney understands the different roles that each division plays in the investigative process and works diligently with student affairs professionals to ensure that they understand not only their role in that process but also the legal requirements mandated by federal law

Title IX and BIT Working Together, A Case Study

Free Webinar

Title IX and BIT/CARE teams have many important areas of overlap that staff and faculty working in these spaces need to understand. Keeping BIT and Title IX cases apart can lead to breakdowns in gatekeeping, violence risk assessments, and interim/supportive measures. While BIT/CARE cases are not always Title IX cases, we’d like to make the argument that all Title IX cases would benefit from a BIT/CARE lens. Join us for this free webinar to address the essential points of intersectionality between these two entities, a review of common hotspots and areas of tension, and the importance of adopting a collaborative, team orientated approach within the bounds of state and federal guidelines through a case study approach.
