The University of Notre Dame has announced the creation of the Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate, which will provide an academic focus on real estate, including investment, development, public policy, affordable housing, church properties and technology.
The institute is offering courses for undergraduate, graduate and professional students, and the University recently introduced a minor in real estate. The new Institute is being created with a $15 million gift from 1985 Notre Dame graduate Ward Fitzgerald, the CEO and Senior Managing Principal of Exeter Property Group, and his wife, Kathy, and it is being named in their honor. Daniel B. Kelly, a Notre Dame law professor, the new faculty director and more than 40 faculty members will be part of this endeavor.
“With faculty from throughout the University, the Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate is an interdisciplinary hub for world-class research in this field,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, president of Notre Dame. “With this extraordinary gift from Ward and Kathy, our institute is well situated to become a preeminent center for the study of real estate as a means to create places of lasting value. We are deeply grateful.”
