Frank Fuller and Jane Lin of Urban Field Studio have proudly served as Faculty Advisors for The Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use. The program has unfortunately ended after a decade of assisting city leaders to tackle tough land use problems. The Rose Center was a partnership between the National League of Cities and the Urban Land Institute. The Rose Center provided technical assistance and professional development for city leaders (like Mayors, City Council Members, City Managers, and directors of Departments) through forums, workshops, and webinars. The Rose Center served about 40 cities in the United States and brought together city leaders with experts in urban design, economics, private-public partnerships, and housing to tackle specific issues identified by Cities.

Frank Fuller worked with the cities of Louisville (2012-2013), Minneapolis (2009-2010), and Anchorage (2016-2017) and Jane worked with the City of Tucson (2017-2018). The Fellowship for Cities is a year long, and Faculty Advisors meet with the Fellows on a regular basis during the year. The Class of 2018 also featured Richmond, VA; Salt Lake City, UT; and Columbus, OH.

For Tucson, AZ the Fellows identified the Oracle area as an area, just outside of the growing downtown, that has been historically ignored. The area had its heyday when the Miracle Mile ran through it. The Peer Exchange Panel suggested strategies that were equitable and inclusive, building upon the assets in the area. A video is also available through local news coverage.
