RICHARD S. ZIMAN CENTER FOR REAL ESTATE AT UCLA

Mission

The mission of the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA is to advance thought leadership in the field of real estate by generating influential research, educating the next generation of leaders, and providing meaningful forums for industry professionals and policymakers. Through its various activities and programs, the Center employs an interdisciplinary and global approach to addressing the most critical real estate challenges facing our society today and in the future.

Background

The Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate, a joint center of UCLA Anderson School of Management and UCLA School of Law, was formed with a mandate to create and administer UCLA’s activities surrounding the topic of real estate. The Ziman Center has three overarching characteristics:
  • It is firmly grounded in the research and teaching missions of UCLA Anderson School of Management, UCLA School of Law, and UCLA as a whole.
  • It draws upon faculty and departments throughout UCLA, including management, law, public policy, urban planning, engineering, architecture, and geography to fulfill its goals.
  • It is tightly coupled to the real estate community it was established to serve, with a special emphasis on California and the center’s growing global mandate.
History

The impetus to establish a new real estate center at UCLA Anderson School of Management was the result of the innovative vision and dedication of John S. Long. In fall 2001, the Center was renamed in recognition of the generosity of Richard S. Ziman, who established the Centerís permanent endowment. In fall 2005, the Center was reconstituted as the campus-wide center of both UCLA Anderson School of Management and UCLA School of Law. The Center currently enjoys the leadership of a 21-member Founding Board comprised of influential leaders from the real estate industry
