Lusk Center Membership

The ever-changing and complex real estate environment places special demands upon the industry and creates the need for timely interchange and analysis of issues ranging from financial and regional market evolution to changes in the regulatory environment. The USC Lusk Center for Real Estate seeks to provide critical analysis and programming relevant to real estate markets, institutions, and policy. The Lusk Center seeks to foster an exchange of ideas among professionals within the real estate industry and to facilitate interaction and learning among real estate professionals, policymakers, university academics, and students. 

The USC Lusk Center for Real Estate has a variety of exciting opportunities open to public and private industry leaders with an interest in the evolution and analysis of real estate markets, institutions and policy. Lusk Center Members benefit by participating in professional gatherings, academically oriented activities, and research seminars. Members also lead the planning and convening of these forums and share valuable insights and learning with industry leaders, policymakers, researchers, and students. 

Membership to the Lusk Center is available at three levels. The three board-level affiliations, Advisory, Executive, and Center are recruited by invitation only.

  • Advisory Council: The highest-level advisors to the Center, recruited for their expertise and seniority in the real estate industry. Advisory Council members may designate an additional representative from their firm to the Executive Committee. They also receive one complimentary registration to the Lusk Annual Retreat.

  • Executive Committee: The Lusk Executive Committee brings a wide array of experience to the Lusk Advisory Board. They frequently participate in Center programming and contribute by serving on the Lusk Annual Retreat planning committee; delivering industry knowledge at student events such as the Lusk Speaker Series and Ross Program; and informing the Casden Multifamily Forecast Conference program.

  • Center Membership: For graduates from within the last decade who possess a strong background in the real estate industry. Supporters remain at this level for a maximum of three years and are invited to participate at one of the Center’s more senior giving levels upon completion of the term.
