Center for Sustainable Built Environment

The Center for the Sustainable Built Environment seeks to advance the study and practice of sustainability across the many disciplines that encompass professional real estate. Those areas include real estate development, management, finance, and construction management.

 

The Center pursues several paths to achieve its mission, and specific SBE offerings align with those paths. Paths include the First Symposium on Sustainability in Real Estate Education, and the First Symposium on Sustainability in Real Estate Communication and Journalism. Together, these symposia bookend the real estate industry’s supply chain: The former focuses on educating the next generation of real estate professionals, while the latter looks at the real estate customer and communication supply chains.

 

In addition, the Center coordinates with other Schack programs over the course of the year to integrate sustainability into existing course and program structure.

 

Collaborations include:

  • Urban Lab
  • The REIT Conference
  • Global Field Intensives
