The academic director at Rutgers University’s real estate program has been elected to serve on the board of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association, the school announced.
Morris A. Davis, the Paul V. Profeta Chair of Real Estate, will serve a three-year term that begins in 2017. The board appointment with the association, known as AREUEA, will allow Davis to network with fellow academic and industry leaders and foster continued research in the real estate sector to help guide decision making for years to come.
The Rutgers Business School Center for Real Estate said the appointment will enhance the reach of the three-year-old program and continue to showcase its growth as a center of research and learning.
“I am honored to join a board filled with some many influential minds from the worlds of real estate, urban economics and macroeconomics,” Davis said in a prepared statement. “I hope to bring my experience and the work and research being done at the Rutgers Center for Real Estate into this role to help enhance the reputation and reach of the AREUEA organization.
“I thank the members of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association for their vote and I look forward to beginning my term.”
Founded in 1964, AREUEA grew out of the Allied Social Science Association as the need was realized for further research and data in the fields of real estate development, planning and economics, according to a news release. The association supports academics and thought leaders in their studies to advance the understanding of real estate and its impact on the broader economy.
