GSSW Alumna Is Witness to History

Colleen Fitzgerald, Boston College Graduate School of Social Work alumna
Colleen Fitzgerald, MSW '11, came to work in Libya about a month before its liberation; 12 months later, she sees a country facing many challenges, but whose people have great hopes for the future.

AUGUST 17, 2012

Colleen Fitzgerald thought she was simply embarking on an international field placement last year to complete her studies in the Graduate School of Social Work. Instead, she wound up being a witness to history.

Upon completing her internship with the International Medical Corps in Jordan, Fitzgerald was offered an opportunity by the organization to work in an unlikely, and dangerous, setting: Libya, which at the time was in the throes of an uprising against long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi.

But Fitzgerald decided to go. Now, with the first anniversary of Gaddafi’s overthrow this month, she is reflecting on what has been an eventful year, both for her and the country she has called home.  More about GSSW Alumna from the Boston College Chronicle »
