Eliza States

Program Coordinator, Executive Education



Eliza plans executive education programs for mayors and city leaders. Eliza joined Harvard after spending the last three years in southern Spain teaching English. Before that, she worked at several Boston-area nonprofits related to the education sector. A native of the Boston area, Eliza graduated from Pitzer College on the west coast, double majoring in environmental analysis/political studies and Spanish. She loves to travel, visit new places, and experience different cultures. She is grateful that Pitzer enabled her to study abroad her entire junior year in Sevilla, Spain and Quito, Ecuador.

She is known to friends for her attention to detail and love of all things associated with how cities are run. She can often be found looking to expand her circle of board game friends, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing tennis, or hanging out with her family’s black lab.
