In her role as chancellor of the University of Wisconsin–Madison at age 50 (in 1991), the Chicago Tribune reported:
- "The Wisconsin press has shown an abiding interest in her as well. Never before have they had a chancellor like Shalala. She has thrown the doors of the chancellor`s mansion open to scores of receptions, dinners and salon-type bashes for such guests as Bishop Desmond Tutu, the South African activist."

Policing round table
June 8 2020, Representative Donna Shalala joined more than 150 Members of Congress in co-sponsoring the Justice in Policing Act of 2020, a bold, comprehensive approach to hold police accountable, change the culture of law enforcement and build trust between law enforcement and our communities. If signed into law, the Justice in Policing Act of 2020 would ban chokeholds, mandate the use of dashboard cameras, prohibit local law enforcement from racial, religious and discriminatory profiling, and facilitate training on racial, religious, and discriminatory profiling for all law enforcement.
