Let's make an impact, together.

Shape the future.
An educational program that helps racially, ethnically and gender diverse students earn undergraduate degrees and secure promising careers in real estate and related sectors.
This program has the potential to graduate up to 150 seniors from 25 colleges annually, to be hired across the industry. And up to another 1,200 ethnically diverse students will be promoted for part-time/summer employment.
Real estate is where you shop, where you live, where you go to work. However, the industry has not been lead by a very diverse group of leaders.
The efforts of the Ferguson CLE Program are oriented to the future. We ask ourselves the question: how do we make the real estate industry more visible to a broader group of potential leaders?
By bringing diverse students into the pipeline and helping nurture them through their career paths to the point where they become the future leaders, we will help create a new and better world for the industry, as well as, a better world overall.
