In our latest installment of Field Notes, we talk to Monica O’Reilly. Monica is a Masters student in the Public Policy and Administration program at CSU, concentrating in International Policy and Management. After receiving her Bachelors in zoology, Monica quickly realized that public policy and administration is at the forefront of social and environmental change, leading her here to CSU. We chat about her internship with the Global Livingston Institute (GLI), her interest in decolonizing development, and her hopes to travel to Uganda this January for an immersion trip with GLI focused on best practices in community development.
