The Spaulding Award
The Spaulding Award is presented to an MIT Center for Real Estate graduate whose work in industry has enriched the profession and/or who has demonstrated involvement in the community through service or leadership. The award is given periodically, approximately every other year.
Created to honor the leadership, energy, and vision of Center founder Hank Spaulding, the award was established in June, 1991 when he became Chairman Emeritus of the Center. As Spaulding himself said in presenting the award to its first recipient, Sarah Abrams, "The winner of this award should not only be successful at what she does, but also should do it in a way that brings honor to the enterprise."
