Because UCLA is transitioning to online classes effective March 11th to April 10th due to the coronavirus, all events at the James West Alumni Center have been canceled during this time period. This event will hopefully be rescheduled for May/June. The calendar will be updated once this date is finalized.

Bruin Professionals and the Real Estate Alumni Group are delighted to announce another riveting lunch event.  On Wednesday, April 8th, Anderson School Professor Eric Sussman will be sharing his real estate perspective, including thoughts on the proposed California split tax roll initiative and 2020 trends.  Prof. Sussman is not only one of UCLA’s most popular professors (with numerous prestigious awards), he also manages several funds that have acquired, rehabilitated, and developed more than two million square feet of residential/ commercial real estate in the past 20 years.
