UM’s current era was launched in June 2001 with the naming of Shalala as the fifth president in the history of the institution. Her presidency has been marked by accelerated progress in all key areas—teaching and learning, the discovery of new knowledge, the delivery of cutting-edge medical care, service to the region and beyond, and fundraising.
Under her leadership, UM rapidly advanced into the top-tier of American higher education, joining the nation’s finest research universities.
President Shalala has also served as a professor of political science, teaching one of the University’s largest and most popular courses focusing on the politics and economics of health care. She plans to return to the faculty as a professor of political science and health policy.
This event is intended for the University community.
WHEN/WHERE: 4 p.m. sharp, April 30. Student Activities Center (third floor), 1330 Miller Drive, UM’s Coral Gables campus.
