Herbert Wertheim has withdrawn his pledge to donate $20 million to Florida International University's newly created College of Medicine and resigned from the university's board of trustees after a dispute with the administration.
The former chairman of the FIU board of trustees, Wertheim, requested his name be taken off the college of medicine. He had been one of its key supporters as the college won state approval this year and his donation and its state match was to be a large part of its funding. The donation was the largest in FIU's history."
