About Us

The Urban Land Institute

The Urban Land Institute is a 501 © (3) nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members. Founded in 1936, ULI now has almost 40,000 members worldwide, representing the entire spectrum of real estate and land use disciplines within both private enterprises and public agencies.

The Michigan District Council

District Councils are ULI at the local level. By providing educational forums, community outreach programs and industry expertise to community leaders, the opportunity to influence local land use policy continues to be the focus of ULI’s District Councils.

The Michigan District Council of the Urban Land Institute (known at the time as ULI Detroit) was founded in 1999. Starting with just a few members, the District Council has grown to more than 300 members in the past 13 years.

In September 2011 ULI Detroit announced that in order to facilitate growth and better serve regions outside of Southeast Michigan, the District Council will be expanding its annual programming and services to a statewide level, and would be changing its designation from “Detroit” to “Michigan” to reflect its expansion efforts.

More information about ULI Michigan’s expansion can be found on our West Michigan page.
