University of Miami president Donna Shalala says she’s stepping down next year from the job she’s held since 2001.
Shalala came to the university after leading the federal health agency for eight years and serving as chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
She helped build the national stature of the school's medical school and hospital and increased research budgets.
Frank Nero, former head of the Beacon Council, says even big businessmen were impressed by Shalala
“It was always a big deal," he says.
