Making and adjusting plans and schedules required flexibility in 2021. But together, we proved resilient enough to allow education and research to continue. The results of this effort were impressive, and we share them in this annual report.
There were numerous completed PhDs and publications in 2021 and many awards and accolades. Our student population grew to almost 25,000 and the number of staff increased as well. But there were also concerns about student well-being and workloads. And there was a focus on new forms of recognition and rewards.
