The Institute seeks to foster an intellectual community of scholars who analyze important real estate issues and provide real-world solutions.
To this end, the Institute sponsors Real Estate Research Roundtables, a series of faculty workshop presentations and Q&A sessions on papers and projects related to real estate. The roundtables are interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary, with presentations rotating among disciplines on a wide range of topics:
