About Us

The Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy was established in the fall of 1998 to promote academic excellence and national leadership in the analysis of housing and the application of knowledge to urban policy. The Program involves academic and professional leaders to further its research and educational objectives.

The Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy supports economic research and teaching throughout the campus on urban development and policy. The Program arranges internships for professional students and encourages closer links between the university and the community of urban professionals.

Institutional Support

Institutional support for the Program is provided by the I. Donald Terner Distinguished Professorship, established in 1999 to honor the legacy of a pioneer and innovator in the delivery of housing affordable to American families. The Program regularly sponsors conferences and symposia in Don Terner's memory, covering diverse topics in housing and urban policy.

The Program is administered by Goldman School of Public Policy and is associated with the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics.
