Policy Advisory Board

With more than 110 real estate executives on the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate's Policy Advisory Board, the Center has a multi-disciplinary cadre of industry professionals overseeing its programs, activities and direction. The Policy Advisory Board consists of four committees:

The Executive Committee is comprised of senior business and real estate executives who provide oversight of the strategic direction of the Center. Members provide financial support, assist in fundraising, and oversee the Center's budget. The Executive Committee members represent both commercial and residential real estate interests. They work with students, faculty and other PAB committees to advance the Center's vision of being a world-class real estate center and mission of delivering outstanding education, industry outreach, research, and career placement services to advance socially responsible leadership in real estate.

The Commercial Real Estate Committee provides guidance and support of all aspects of commercial real estate for the benefit of the Center and the University of San Diego. Members meet three times per year and offer their expertise in support of conferences, generate applied research ideas, keep Center faculty and staff apprised of industry trends and critical issues and help expand the relationships of the Center with the commercial real estate industry. The committee has been instrumental in assisting the Center with internship and career services, in addition to being actively involved in the mentorship and job shadowing programs the Center offers its students.

The Residential Real Estate Committee provides guidance and support on all aspects of residential real estate for the benefit of the Center and the University of San Diego. Members offer their expertise in support of conferences, generate applied research ideas, keep Center faculty and staff apprised of industry trends and critical issues and help expand the relationships of the Center with the residential real estate industry locally, nationally and internationally. Members also work cooperatively with other PAB committees to enhance the career placement opportunities available to USD's real estate students and alumni.

The Young Entrepreneurs Council was established to harness the energy, enthusiasm and ideas of the next generation of real estate leaders. Members are expected to participate in classroom speaking engagements, real estate society involvement, and mentor relationships. The Council helps recruit MSRE candidates and promotes continuing education and Center activities to their individual firms.
