This video is also available with an audio description.

As the year draws to a close, here are highlights from video stories produced by UW News during 2021 — a year where the COVID-19 pandemic continued to impact our lives.

As we learned more about ways to meet this challenge, many students, faculty and staff returned to campus. We continued to teach, learn and work while getting vaccinated, boosted, masking up and staying connected in new and different ways.

Our mission at UW News is to share the stories of the outstanding people, programs and research coming out of the University of Washington. In addition to publishing news releases and connecting reporters with faculty experts, we offer video stories, soundbites and b-roll to external news outlets to use in broadcasts, online stories and social media.

Covering topics from artificial intelligence to zooplankton, UW News videos were used in 2021 by outlets such as WIRED, PBS, local TV stations and radio stations and garnered more than a quarter-million views across our platforms.

Thank you to all of the people who collaborated in making these videos. We could not tell these stories without you.
