Programs & Events
As one of the City’s leading academic research centers, part of our mission is to promote frank and public discussions of current issues and to foster public debate. Our programs and events are held during the academic year.
Each semester, the Furman Center sponsors a series of breakfast meetings that bring together government officials, the business community, leaders of non-profit organizations and academic researchers to discuss and debate critical issues in land use, real estate and urban policy.
Each year, the Center hosts or co-hosts a variety of conferences, panels and roundtables to provide an opportunity for members of the academic community to meet and discuss ideas and the latest research with the real estate development and finance community, non-profit organizations devoted to community planning, neighborhood economic development, home-ownership and the provision of low and moderate income housing, and policy makers concerned with land use, economic development, real estate and housing.
