The ceremony will honor industry icon and entrepreneur Fred Sands in recognizing his endowment of a dynamic new enterprise within the University’s business school.

The Fred Sands Institute will engage students and industry professionals at both practical and policy levels and explore real estate trends and best practices while advancing real estate knowledge, informing business practices, and addressing critical and other timely industry topics. Many of the Institute’s programs, symposia and instruction will operate out of a designated area at the Drescher Graduate Campus in Malibu, where a plaque will identify the Fred Sands Institute.
