  • “The global pandemic has been a timely reminder of how interconnected we all are. As an Institute we are well equipped to enable the sharing of best practices around the world and to find new solutions to the real estate challenges we face.”
    – Global Chairman Owen D. Thomas

ULI Global CEO W. Edward Walter discusses how the Institute is responding to the COVID pandemic, and addressing the challenges faced by our communities.


A strong Foundation enables ULI to pursue its mission and tackle big ideas through economic cycles. We would not be where we are today without the investments of those who are committed to enhancing ULI's transformative work in our communities around the world. With increased and expanded investments in the Foundation, ULI is able to grow stronger, to reach farther, and to move faster.

– Douglas D. Abbey, ULI Foundation Chairman


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

“Diversity, equity and inclusion are the foundations on which ULI’s mission is built. As an organization we are committed to providing the leadership required to tackle inequity in both the real estate industry and our communities.”

W. Edward Walter, ULI Global CEO
