The Samuel Zell and Robert Lurie Real Estate Center

The Samuel Zell and Robert Lurie Real Estate Center was so named in recognition of its permanent endowment by Samuel Zell in 1998. The Center was established in 1983 by The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania to foster excellence in real estate education and research.

The Zell/Lurie Center works with the Wharton Real Estate Department faculty to foster excellence in real estate education. The Zell/Lurie Center helps develop curriculum for the Real Estate Department, ranked best in the country for the past twelve years by US News & World Report. In keeping with its commitment to excellence in education, the Center awards fellowships and scholarships to promising real estate students. Many of these awards have been funded in perpetuity by Zell/Lurie Center members.

The Zell/Lurie Center plays a leading role in the discussion and formulation of real-estate public policy. The Center sponsors a wide variety of seminars and conferences throughout the year, including the Farash Distinguished Lecture Series, which brings noted real estate practitioners to the Center, and the Spring and Fall Members' Meetings. These Meetings provide unequalled networking opportunities and an extraordinary forum for students, faculty and prominent real estate executives to discuss relevant industry concerns. In recognition of generous funding provided by Center member Max Farash, these events are now centered around the Max Farash Real Estate Roundtable.

The Zell/Lurie Real Estate Center supports and extends the globalization initiatives of The Wharton School through the activities of its International Housing Finance Program. The Center also serves as a liaison between Wharton faculty and students and business professionals -- routinely calling upon the expertise of its Advisory Board and membership to enhance both its research and education programs. One highly successful example of this interaction is the Ballard Executive Visitor series, named in honor of Claude Ballard, a Center member and former partner at Goldman, Sachs, who established the Center's very first endowment.
