The winning team will receive $50,000 and the finalist teams $10,000 each.

UrbanPlan

UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging exercise in which participants—high school students, university students, or public officials—learn about the fundamental forces that affect real estate development in our communities. Participants experience the challenging issues, private and public sector roles, complex trade-offs, and fundamental economics in play when proposing realistic land use solutions to vexing growth challenges.

Women’s Leadership Initiative

The Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) at ULI was founded in 2011 to encourage greater diversity in the real estate and land use industry. WLI is a global initiative with local chapters throughout ULI’s district and national councils. Programming includes panel discussions on real estate trends, networking events, leadership training, mentorship, and scholarships.

Lead, Learn, and Grow

The Navigator is a web-based tool that guides ULI members through the breadth of ULI engagement opportunities to lead, serve, and grow in their careers. The Navigator matches members with opportunities based on their interests, career stage, preferred location and time commitment.  Once members find relevant matches, ULI staff members facilitate their participation in an engagement opportunity at the local, regional, or global level.

The mission of the Urban Land Institute is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Established in 1936, the Institute today has more than 40,000 members worldwide, representing the entire spectrum of the land use and development disciplines. ULI relies heavily on the experience of its members. It is through member involvement and information resources that ULI has been able to set standards of excellence in development practice.
