Rose Center for Public Leadership

ULI Foundation Governor Daniel Rose committed $5 million in 2008 to establish the Rose Center for Public Leadership to empower leaders in the public sector to envision, build, and sustain successful 21st-century communities.

The mission of the ULI Rose Center is to encourage and support excellence in land use decision making. By providing public officials with access to information, best practices, peer networks, and other resources, the Rose Center seeks to foster creative, efficient, practical, and sustainable land use policies.

Through this center, ULI significantly expands its public sector engagement and mission to provide leadership in the responsible use of land. The yearlong Daniel Rose Fellowship program provides the mayors of four large U.S. cities with ULI assistance on a local land use development challenge, while its workshops and webinars provide discussion forums for best practices on topical land use issues to a wide array of public sector practitioners. Through its education and training programs that bring competent, honorable, and knowledgeable participants together from the public and private sectors, the Rose Center aspires to facilitate effective working relationships between the public and private sectors.

Watch the video above to hear the Louisville fellowship team discuss how their participation in the program helped them create a more cohesive corridor for their city’s land use challenges. Support the Rose Center through the ULI Foundation Annual Fund.
