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.

Dr. Dee Dee Anderson, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs
The University of Southern Mississippi

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

Dr. Roger G. Brown, Chancellor Emeritus
University of Tennessee Chattanooga

Courtney is an experienced and effective legal counsel for any educational institution in need of training, planning and policy writing. For five years, she worked with me as in-house counsel for UTC. She was knowledgeable, hard-working and always devoted to protecting the University’s best interests.

Robert Ratchford
Chief of Police, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga

As Chief of Police for campus law enforcement, I worked with Courtney through numerous legal issues over an 8 year period. She provided sound guidance during sensitive employment and compliance related matters that arose as well as assistance in policy drafting. I highly recommend her services.
