We are leading the future of global urban development.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is a global, non-profit, member-driven organisation comprising more than 45,000 real estate and urban development professionals.
ULI’s interdisciplinary membership represents all aspects of the industry, including developers, property owners, investors, architects, urban planners, public officials, real estate brokers, appraisers, attorneys, engineers, financiers, and academics. Established in 1936, the Institute has a presence in the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions, with members in over 80 countries. The ULI Poland National Council has been active since 2014.
Our mission is to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide.
Our mission statement is supported by three commitments that expand on our objectives and explain how we deliver on our mission. These mission commitments are:
CONNECT active, passionate, diverse members through the foremost global network of interdisciplinary professionals
INSPIRE best practices for equitable and sustainable land use through content, education, convening, mentoring, and knowledge sharing
LEAD in solving community and real estate challenges through applied collective global experience and philanthropic engagement
The mission statement and commitments capture our forward-looking nature, our global footprint, and our commitment to delivering real-world impact in our communities. The commitments emphasize ULI’s role in bringing together all sections of the real estate industry and the key part our members play in delivering change through knowledge sharing and applying collective experience. In keeping with our strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we explicitly reference the need for diversity in our membership and our belief that communities can only truly thrive if they are equitable.
