Carter Real Estate Center

Preparing Responsible Real Estate Professionals

Our Mission

The Carter Real Estate Center (CREC) brings together students, faculty, and industry leaders (including an extensive alumni network) through  teaching, research and service — to better understand the complexities of the real estate market and find practical solutions for the issues facing the industry today. The CREC fulfills this mission through:

  • Working to promote the undergraduate academic real estate programs, currently consisting of a major, minor, and a concentration within the Business Administration degree.
  • Assisting faculty and club leadership in developing experiential opportunities that will enhance and reinforce students' academic experience. Our students are linked with the professional real estate community through the real estate club, partnerships with other college organziations, field trips, conferences, networking opportunities and internships and permanent career opportunities.    
  • Supporting our faculty in their real estate research, which is presented at academic conferences and published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
  • Building relationships with the business community to support our students' professional development while providing brokers, developers, investors, property owners, and other employers with talented and ready-to-work graduates.
