The Joseph E. Corcoran Center for Real Estate and Urban Action leverages a multidisciplinary approach to cultivate discussions and develop actions that foster community transformation.
In accordance with the mission of Boston College, The Corcoran Center aims to develop the next generation of ethical real estate professionals by educating and inspiring students, alumni, and other key stakeholders so they may harness real estate as a catalyst for needed change in areas where the marginalization of vulnerable citizens is most severe, and enact broad scope solutions to neighborhoods of concentrated poverty.
These actions, when applied, will result in healthy and productive neighborhoods that will be models for cities throughout the country and the world.
About the Center
Curriculum: Increase access to traditional classroom learning, with real estate courses developed by the Center within the Carroll School of Management.
