Board Leadership

The UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate Board was established to further the strategic mission and qualitative growth of the Ziman Center. It serves as the Center's primary advisory body, providing expertise and counsel on critical issues.

The Center's endowment has been raised through a dedicated and active group of visionaries that we call our Founding Members. We are grateful for their involvement in the Center, and for their recognition of UCLA's role in real estate research and management education in the local and global communities.
