Report on the academic year 2021-2022 of the UB
The publication features statistical information about the UB which is available online, and it highlights the presence of the University in society and the international sphere. In the prologue, the rector says that the Report “supports transparency and accountability of our institution towards society, and it allows us to value the most distinguished actions carried out in the fields of teaching, research, transfer, internationalization and culture”.
The Report 2021-2022 starts with a chapter titled “La Universitat de Barcelona avui” (The University of Barcelona Today), which shares the main strengths that characterize the institution and it describes the features that describe its identity. Then, the publication is divided into four themed blocs: “Una universitat compromesa amb la societat” (A university engaged with society), which describes initiatives related to transparency, ethics, sustainability and good governance, entrepreneurship and transfer to society, as well as institutional, cultural and supporting activities; “La Universitat líder en formació” (A University at the forefront of education), which lists the academic offering, support for students, innovation, assessment and teaching; “La Universitat capdavantera en recerca” (A University in the vanguard of research), which analyses the research performance, transfer of technology, knowledge and innovation and the doctoral tasks and dissemination of scientific culture, and “Una universitat internacional” (An international university), which is focused on the international institutional activity and the mobility of the different university collectives.
This year’s Report has changed the design of the databoards to provide a friendlier reading, similar to other institutional documents such as The UB in figures. The document includes, like in previous editions, photographs and graphic material that illustrate the content. It also includes extracts from articles published in the media which refer to the reviewed activities.
The publication has been carried out by the Technical Bureau at the Rectorʼs Office and has been edited by Editions and Publications of the University of Barcelona. The print run of the Report accounts for 200 copies in Catalan, which will be distributed around the University and in several institutions and bodies linked to higher education in Catalonia. Like last year, the Spanish and English editions will be published on digital format and will be soon available. The electronic format for this document will be distributed to different institutions and bodies, both national and international.
