The Leadership Excellence Award recognizes the interdependent relationship between Monmouth University and the real estate industry. The award is conferred annually upon an outstanding individual for his or her distinctive contributions to the state of New Jersey and the nation through a career in real estate.
The Service to the Industry Award is given occasionally to an individual or organization who has provided exceptional service and support in advocacy, education or other services to the real estate industry.
The Kislak Real Estate Institute
at Monmouth University was established in order to meet the educational needs
of the real estate industry in a university setting. Students can obtain a
Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in real estate. Graduate
students can obtain a Master’s in Business Administration with a concentration in
real estate. It is the only such program offered at any New Jersey college or
university. The Kislak Real Estate Institute also provides a learning
opportunity for real estate industry professionals to continue their education
through the Real Estate Certificate program. A number of scholarship funds have
been endowed and are available to real estate students.
In the continuing evolution of
the Kislak Real Estate Institute, additional course offerings are being planned
and research in topics of interest and value to the real estate industry are
One of the founding principles of
the Kislak Real Estate Institute was to create a locus that brings together the
wide range of organizations that share a common interest in the real estate
field, including commercial and residential developers, financial institutions,
architects, insurance companies, property managers, attorneys, planners,
appraisers, regulators and others. In addition, other non-profit real estate
and land use related organizations have held conferences on campus and links to
such organizations are being forged.
As we celebrate our 21st Leadership Excellence Award reception we look back at the past two decades as testimony to the vision, dedication, and support that the real estate community has provided to the Real Estate Institute. We gratefully acknowledge your efforts and thank you for your commitment to Monmouth University.
