Year in Review 2018

24 May 2019

The Year in Review 2018 sums up everything that makes this university what it is. While volumes could have been filled with a comprehensive report, the intention of this document is to give you a broad overview, and a few highlights, of the institution’s activities, its goals and its many achievements over the previous year. More than anything, this publication is an acknowledgement of our students and staff and all those who do so much to support the academic project.
