Members, who span a range of fields within the industry, also serve Cornell University as a source of expertise in many areas of interest such as investment advice for endowment, planning and property development, student housing, and more. Cornell Real Estate Council members also play a vital part in ongoing real estate activities through the invitation to participate in symposia, deliver lectures, meet with students to offer industry perspectives and case studies, meet with prospective real estate students, serve as a job network for summer and permanent positions, and more.
The Cornell Real Estate Council started with a small group of alumni in the 1970s to over 1,000 present-day members.
The Associate Real Estate Council (AREC) is a University-wide organization of Cornell graduate students interested in real estate. Its members are enrolled in graduate programs from the Baker Program in Real Estate, School of Hotel Administration, Johnson Graduate School of Management, Law School, Engineering, Architecture, and Planning, and others.
A pre-professional organization, AREC organizes and sponsors educational, training, and professional development activities for its members. It also promotes its members to the industry through annual publication of the Graduate Student Resume Book, hosting guest speakers, industry treks, recruiting visits and strengthening the link between students on-campus and the Cornell Real Estate Council.
The Cornell Real Estate Review is a scholarly journal providing a conduit for scholars, professional practitioners, and students to express ideas, concepts and research findings from all fields related to the real estate profession. The Review, unique as a student edited and managed real estate journal, is similar to a Law Review as the student editorial board referees and edits submissions from scholars and practitioners worldwide.
The Review focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of real estate by blending both informative practical papers with application based academic research across the breath of design, business, economics, engineering, finance, law, planning, development, marketing and property management.
