Scholars affiliated with the Lusk Center collaborate with industry leaders, public decision makers, and community experts to craft innovative solutions to the day’s pressing real estate development and finance challenges.
Applicants are encouraged from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., economics, business, urban planning, public policy) with a demonstrated capacity to integrate methods and insights across disciplinary boundaries. The School offers an undergraduate major and minor in real estate development, and a Master of Real Estate Development. Our new colleague will contribute to teaching in our real estate development programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels.
