What We Do

ULI was founded 75 years ago on the idea that the world would benefit from an organization dedicated to developing leadership in the responsible use of land in order to create and sustain thriving communities worldwide. That’s the mission we support here in South Carolina.

As members, all of us aim to improve the quality of the places we live, and we believe this starts with an open sharing of practical experience and pragmatic solutions.

What We Do

Local Initiatives

ULI South Carolina’s local initiatives are making a difference in our communities across the state.  They fulfill and support the mission of ULI.


These interactive events allow for access to high-level industry professionals discussing timely and pertinent topics of interest, as well as immersive networking opportunities with peers, practitioners and real estate industry leaders. They are designed to address the needs of members across the full range of disciplines, interests and experiences. We engage national and local experts.

Technical Assistance

Multi-disciplinary panels convene for a 1 ½  to 2-day period, bringing expertise and advice to local government and non-profit organizations struggling with critical land use issues. ULI SC members share their time and talent to analyze the problems, discuss the possible solutions, to make a set of  recommendations.

Sustainable Leadership Institute

The ULI SC Sustainable Leadership Institute strives to connect decision makers in the public, private and non-profit sectors from across the state to establish a shared vision for creating and sustaining thriving communities in South Carolina.

Reality Check

Reality Check is a collaborative regional visioning process developed by ULI which engages diverse regional leaders in a dialogue on how their region should grow and compete in the global marketplace. ULI South Carolina has hosted Reality Checks in the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Region and the 10-county Upstate Region. We are planning a 3rd for the Midlands in 2013.
