Lusk Center for Real Estate
Founded in 1989, the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate serves as a unique resource for the academy, real estate students, and the professional community. A joint center drawing on the strengths of both the USC Price School and the USC Marshall School of Business, the Lusk Center exists as a bridge for exchanging insights to improve practice and advance research.
Faculty routinely share their expertise with professionals through research briefs, forums, and conferences. The Borstein case study series takes advances in practice back to the university as teaching tools. The Lusk Center also houses the Casden Real Estate Economic Forecast, which analyzes Southern California’s real estate markets.
In addition to fostering a strong partnership with the profession, the Lusk Center maintains a substantial student support mission, including numerous opportunities for internships and mentorships as well as singular programs such as the Ross Minority Program in Real Estate—which ensures continuous infusion of fresh points of view into the region’s real estate profession by providing executive education aimed at women and underrepresented minorities.
