The Wall Fellows, a student group from the E. Craig Wall Senior College of Business at Coastal Carolina University (CCU), visited the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in London, thanks to the CCU's Grant Center for Real Estate and Economic Development.
CCU is the first U.S. university to academically support the International Ethics Standards Coalition led by RICS.
RICS members are known as Chartered Surveyors and engage in numerous real estate-based activities such as valuation, property management, town planning and construction. RICS was founded nearly 150 years ago and has 120,000 members in more than 140 countries. The group works with well-known global organizations such as the United Nations and the European Union to promote sustainability and uphold high standards.
The Grant Center offers courses and publishes research findings. Each year the center hosts a real estate and economic summit and awards event.
