Course Description:

This 3 hour course is provided as an introduction to the concepts of cultural competency and awareness of the systems, processes and misperceptions in the general real estate community that can create many types of bias. We will explore the origins and some of the institutional history that have contributed to bias in all its forms related to real estate valuation and lending policy.
