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 US 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.
The Rose Center was established in 2008 with a $5 million gift to ULI by Daniel Rose, chairman of New York City- based Rose Associates, Inc.
