Cait Bjellquist, a Residence Hall Director at LIU Post, presented on gender and sexuality at this year's Northeastern Association for College and University Housing Officers (NEACUHO) and was awarded Best Presentation by her peers in NEACUHO.

The conference, which was held June 6 – 9 at Northeastern University, brought together housing officers from campuses throughout the northeastern United States.

Bjellquist described her presentation, "Challenging the Binary – Sex, Gender and Sexual Orientation," as "challenging the traditional binaries of man or woman, gay or straight" and "discussing the difference between biological sex, gender, gender expression, and sexual orientation, how these impact our campus, and brainstorming how to create and foster a community inclusive of all identities."

NEACUHO is an organization of housing, residential life, and student services professionals and paraprofessionals within the Northeast region dedicated to providing opportunities for colleague support, professional development, sharing of information, collaboration, communication, research, and recognition of outstanding contributions to the field.
