The Ziman Center was established to create and administer UCLA's activities surrounding the topic of real estate.
To advance this mandate, the Center has built a community of leading scholars who undertake real estate-related research. The Affiliated Faculty and Fellows join the Center from departments throughout the UCLA campus, including management, economics, law, public policy, urban planning, engineering, architecture and geography, and they generate high-quality, publishable research through the Ziman Center's Working Papers series. In 2005, the Ziman Center established the Faculty Research Fellows program to facilitate the publication of our faculty's research. The Ziman Center funds research by faculty throughout UCLA.
