2020 was a year we will never forget: a pandemic that upended our lives, killings that sparked a nationwide movement to fight racism, a devastating wildfire season and a tumultuous election.
Even as we faced tragedy and sought to end inequities, we also shared moments of joy and curiosity, pride and hope. And we were sustained by the enduring power of education and the unwavering strength of the UW community.
Scroll on for glimpses of the diversity and depth of experiences across the UW in 2020 — the front-line workers caring for our health and safety, the students and faculty who inspired us every day, and the moments that brought us all together.
