Who we are
The Urban Land Institute was originally incorporated on December 14, 1936, as an independent, nonprofit, research and education organization under the name of the National Real Estate Foundation for Practical Research and Education. On December 20, 1939, the name was changed to Urban Land Institute and the Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws were amended accordingly. In 1986, the name was changed to ULI−the Urban Land Institute.
ULI—the Urban Land Institute—is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members. Founded in 1936, the institute now has almost 45,000 members worldwide representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines, working in private enterprise and public service. As the preeminent, multidisciplinary real estate forum, ULI facilitates the open exchange of ideas, information and experience among local, national and international industry leaders and policy makers dedicated to creating better places.
