“We all have a responsibility to create a just society.” - Bryan Stevenson

Kayleigh Baker is a consultant with TNG and has extensive experience in Title IX and Civil Rights investigations. Kayleigh has been asked to serve in a myriad of roles related to Title IX and other Civil Rights investigations. She has been involved with numerous investigations and has served as Investigator, Decision-Maker, Advisor, and even Interim Title IX Coordinator. Her experience is based primarily in Title IX compliance in higher education, but Kayleigh also has experience across a wide variety of Student Affairs areas, including compliance with the Clery Act.  

Kayleigh has significant experience training Title IX Team members and has created internal training for Title IX Investigators and Decision-Makers and has presented nationally as a Title IX practitioner. Kayleigh also has experience working with local law enforcement and District Attorneys to enable better understanding of the intersection and obligations of their work and Title IX regulations.

Prior to working with TNG, Kayleigh served as a Title IX Investigator at The University of Alabama and as University of North Alabama’s first full-time Title IX Coordinator. While at UNA, Kayleigh served on the university’s CARE Team, Clery Committee, and was heavily involved in the institution’s transition to NCAA Division I athletics. In that role, Kayleigh was also responsible for primary prevention programming and has conducted several dozen training sessions on Bystander Intervention, consent, and more. Prior to her work in higher education, Kayleigh was an Assistant District Attorney and regularly instructed law enforcement officers on topics related to civil rights issues.
