Monday, February 19, 2018 Tetreault honored for research contributions
Pat Tetreault, director of the LGBTQA+ Resource Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, received the 2018 Research Recognition Award from the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) Coalition for Sexual and Gender Identities.
The award recognizes the completed or ongoing research on gender and sexuality in higher education. Since 2007, Tetreault has conducted research to advance the LGBTQA+ community.
“I am grateful to learn from and connect with others while doing this work,” said Tetreault. “It enriches my life and my ability to help create positive change.”
Most recently, Tetreault led an update of the LGBTQA+ Campus Climate and Needs Assessment, originally implemented in 2009, with a corresponding article published in 2013. Results from the 2017 survey are expected later this year.
Her additional publications include a chapter on Nebraska LGBT history (2014) and a chapter on Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (2018).
