UPCOMING EVENTS

Throughout the year, the Joint Center for Housing Studies reaches beyond the university to promote national discussion of important housing policy issues. In addition to on-campus seminars, lectures, and webcasts, we convene major conferences and symposia on topics of national importance in the housing field, bringing together housing practitioners, researchers, and policymakers from organizations and communities around the country. Fall 2019 events will be added to the calendar this summer.
