Real Estate Advisory Board

The UA Little Rock School of Business Real Estate Advisory Board advances the objectives of the Real Estate program by providing guidance to the director, the dean, and the faculty.

The Advisory Board members are advocates for the Real Estate program in business and government communities. The board promotes and markets the Real Estate program’s activities in the region. It assists in the development and solicitation of philanthropic and scholarship resources; aids in the recruitment and job placement of students; and provides engaged support. Our students have the opportunity to network with the board.
