COL '18


Eliane is currently pursuing a degree in Justice and Peace with a minor in Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs. She has been involved with the GU Politics Special Operations Team, Research Squad, and Comms Crew prior to joining the Student Advisory Board.

Eliane came to the Hilltop ready to engage those around her in proactive work to drive social change. Through her academic pursuits and service learning opportunities, she seeks to understand how to connect politics to Jesuit values. Her current interests revolve around the relation between politics, social justice, and peace.

Eliane’s commitment to service has been honed in a variety of leadership roles across several organizations. She currently serves on the governing board of the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV), a state coalition that focuses on addressing intimate partner violence and its effects in the state of Maryland. In this position, she works on legislation and policy that promote and protect the well-being of Marylanders.

Before transferring to Georgetown, she attended Prince George’s Community College, where she served as a member of the College Board of Trustees and Editor-in-Chief of Reflections Magazine.

At Georgetown, Eliane directs the Issue of the Month for the Hoya/Homeless Outreach Programs and Education and is involved with the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service (CSJ).

Eliane’s artistic side finds expression in cooking, writing, knitting, and painting. She is a dog person, a classical music lover, and an avid museums visitor.
